A mother, Kemi Kehinde and her two daughters, Opeyemi and Ronke who were arrested for stealing three bags of yam tubers have been discharged and acquitted by the Akure chief magistrates’ court following a pastor’s plea.
The mother and her two daughters stole three bags of tubers of yam from the farmland of Pastor, Ojo Oluwasanmi.
Chief magistrate, Victoria Bob-Manuel, who discharged them said she did so because of the plea made by Oluwasanmi.

She said: “But going by the prayer of the complainant, who is a man of God, the court hereby yields to the mercy pleaded by the complainant and they are discharged and acquitted."
“The offences they committed attract minimum of seven years imprisonment each, but they should thank God and the complainant who has shown open heart.”
Bob-Manuel however, warned them that if they are seen around the farmland of the complainant they would be held liable for any offence committed there.
