A popular Nollywood actress was caught red-handed breaking into a home, according to police reports in Nigeria.
Yewande Akilapa, a rising star in Nollywood, was detained in a house after sneaking inside with a master key.
Unfortunately for her, an occupant of the house came home, and caught her red handed.
This was not the first time she was caught. Akilapa was actually imprisoned for theft and was released several months ago.
Lagos Police said that the incident occurred on Sunday morning. They were called on reports of a large group of people running after a woman screaming “thief thief!”
The woman was trying to escape barefoot.
Before she could reach her home she was caught.
The woman was found with several master keys inside her bra.
She was severely beaten before police arrived and arrested her.
She was brought before a Magistrate’s Court for a bail hearing.
