A carpenter, one Adeyeni Omoleyin, 35, was on Monday arraigned before an Ile-Ife Magistrates’ Court for failing to deliver four stools he was paid N25,000 to make.

Inspector Abdullahi Emmanuel told the court that the defendant collected N25,000 from one Adeolu Mayowa to construct four stools for him, which he failed to do.

He added that the defendant stole the stated sum of money from the owner by converting it to his personal use, contrary to Sections 390(9) and 419 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun.
