Ekundayo, who claimed to be a student of the Federal Polytechnic, Ado-Ekiti, was arraigned before Magistrate Dotun Omoteye on one count charge of stealing.

The culprit was apprehended on July 17, 2023, during one of the 2022/2023 first semester examinations at the Library Lecture Theatre while ransacking the bags of students doing examinations.

The accused pleaded guilty to the offence and was convicted by the Magistrate on the strength of the evidence before him, though with an option of fine.
