Two staff of the Osun High Court, Oke- Fia, Osogbo have been arrested for allegedly stealing typing sheets belonging to the court .

The suspects, identified as Adedoyin Adebowale (46) and Sulaiman Tajudeen(46), were said to have committed the offence on November 20, this year, and were arrested recently after investigations implicated them.

They were arraigned on Monday at the Osun Magistrate Court on a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing.

Police Prosecutor, Adeoye Kayode had told the court that suspects committed the alleged offence on November 20,2020 at High court premises, Oke-fia Osogbo.
