Fatai was charged before the Isolo Magistrates court for sneaking into the complainant’s apartment and stealing.
He pleaded guilty.
The prosecutor, Mr. Oje Uagbale while presenting facts before the court, informed the court that Fatai had earlier been convicted by the same court last year under another name, Oluwaseun Gbenga after he went to a mosque and stole which he confirmed.
Then the prosecutor told the court that from the facts available, that the defendant was a habitual criminal that will not change and asked the court to sentence him accordingly to serve as deterrent because he was not a first offender.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. O.A. Teluwo found Fatai guilty as charged on the two counts and sentenced him accordingly.
However, the court ordered that the sentence will run concurrently which means that Fatai will be spending the next two years at the prison custody.
