Oyekanmi, thereafter, adjourned the matter until April 28, for mention.

Ripples Nigeria gathered that Sanni, of undisclosed address, was charged on a count of arson.

The Prosecutor, Sgt. Bewaji Ojo told the court that on Jan.1, at 3.30 a.m., the defendant unlawfully set ablaze the house of one Sola Adeyemi at No. 2, Balogun St., Mokola, Ibadan.

“The fire allegedly damaged the rug, school bag, a purse, and one standing fan, all valued N45,000.

“Sanni entered the house to steal; the occupants of the house woke up and saw him where he hid, after setting the house on fire and was caught,” Ojo said.

He said the offence contravened Section 443 of the Criminal Code Cap 38, Vol. II, Law of Oyo State 2000.
