Baale fakes kidnap, bags 15 years jail term in Lagos

CITIZENS COMPASS– FOR faking his own kidnap, a High Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos State, on Tuesday, sentenced the deposed Baale of Shangisha in Magodo area of Lagos, Mutiu Ogundare, to 15 years imprisonment.

Justice Hakeem Oshodi convicted the Baale of a three-count charge bordering on breach of peace and fake kidnapping.

Also jailed for the same prison term is his brother, Opeyemi Mohammed.

The court on June 15, 2022, discharged and acquitted his wife Abolanle, of the charges.

Delivering judgment in the matter, Justice Oshodi said he considered the allocutus of the defense counsel in arriving at his decision.
The judge held that the defendants, particularly the first defendant, showed no remorse in the course of the trial.

The first defendant tried to buy his way out of the court. This is why the defendants must be taught a lesson to serve as deterrence to others,” he held.
