Actress acquitted for robbery

Up and coming Nollywood actress, Yetunde Akilapa is in the news again and this time for a positive reason. The last that was heard from her some months ago was a criminal arrest. She was arrested for allegedly being in possession of 100 master keys, which was said to be in her safe keep for criminals. Well, all the allegations has just been proved baseless and the actress has been acquitted.
If you recall, she was detained in Alade Divisional Police headquarters in Somolu, Lagos on Thursday, February 7, 2013 after she was arrested by a mob that accused her of stealing a bunch of keys
Speaking through her lawyer, Yetunde said that the bunch of keys found in her possession were props she used in her movie, ‘Bunmi Akata’ and that she was arrested after being framed by people she regarded as friends.

Yetunde was soon released on bail and had appeared in court several times before the final decision was made on the case. The case filed under ‘Charge no F/10/13 COP v Yetunde Akilapa’ was dismissed for lack of diligent prosecution.
