Pastor sentenced to 18 months imprisonment for stealing goat, turkeys

An Osun state Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting in Osogbo on Thursday December 12, sentenced Solomon Opaalade, pastor of a Cherubim and Seraphim Church, to eighteen months imprisonment for stealing a goat and turkeys.

Adekunle Adeniyi, principal state counsel from the state ministry of justice, disclosed that the pastor stole nine turkeys valued at N270,000 and a goat valued at N18,000 belonging to one Oluwasegun Hammed.

Adeniyi, however, presented two turkeys and charms recovered from Opaalade as well as a statement written by the defendant in the court.

Magistrate Adijat Oloyade, however, found Opaalade guilty of three of the five counts and subsequently sentenced him to 18 months’ imprisonment on each of them or an option of paying N10,000 fine for each of the counts.
