Like the proverbial leopard that can never change its skin till the world comes to an end, so is it for Nollywood’s most prolific kleptomania thief, burglar and shoplifter, Yetunde Akilapa, a Nollywood-Yoruba actress.
Yetundeyetunde is better known for stealing than she is for acting, with the close shave with death during an encounter with mobs sometimes back around Magodo area of Lagos, when she let herself into the home of someone who doesn’t even know her to rob the house, many would thought she would turn a new leaf after herself-publicised spiritual cleansing from this unbecoming trait.
Her recent inglorious adventure to steal an Iphone from where she is undergoing training as a makeup artist somewhere in Fola Agoro, Yaba area of Lagos has led to her being excommunicated from the Yoruba genre of movie industry due to her stealing dexterity.
According to Mike Angelo News, It is alleged that Yetunde had sneaked back into the premises after close of work with the aid of a master key to steal from the shop own by an upwardly mobile woman who just brought some goods from abroad, ranging from bags, iphones, ipads, laptops, and shoes. The notorious Nollywood robber opened the lock and took choice items of iphones, ipads, and laptops. Luck, however ran out of her while trying to escape with her loot as she was once again caught.
As always, while pleading for mercy, the usual culprit was to be blamed, the devil and the mysterious voice she hears in her head that led her on, Yetunde, who just bought a Toyota Matrix car, pleaded for mercy and that she didn’t know what came over her.
Having none of that cock and bull story, the shop owner not wanting to take laws into her own hands invited officers from CMS Police Stations to effect her arrest; not happy with the kids gloves with which the case was being handled as two days later, Yetunde was seen again in the street, the shop owner then took it a notch higher by calling in SARS and within a twinkling of an eye, Yetunde was whisked away and has remained in police custody pending the time she would be charged to court.
She might be cooling off her heels and light fingers behind closed bars soonest to be charges for theft and burglary. Saddened by this constant embarrassment, Bose, Yetunde Akilapa’s sister, took the blame to their mother, whose clothe she tore in public glare alleging her that she once cursed Yetunde.
