Adetunji, who gave the bail condition, also said that the sureties must show evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

Mameh said Eromosele dipped his hands into the box and stole N9,200, which was a sacrilege. He said the said money belonged to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church.

The prosecutor said that the offences committed are contrary to Section 166(d) and punishable under Section 285 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

  1. Is there any standard in our judiciary that States how punishment and nail conditions are given? Cos I keep wondering why Yakubu Yusuf the police pension thief accused of stealing 27b will pay N750,000 and 9,200 pays N150,000 as fine? Nigeria has no hope. This is like tge judiciary telling you "steal very well when you want to steal".

  3. These are half-baked magistrates that should never have smelled the Bench. How can you set a bail of N150,000 for stealing N9,200? The Catholic Church that took this kind of case to court is also mean.
