Four persons jailed in Osun for selling
For producing Osun State School uniforms and selling at N1,000 per pupil instead of
N1,800 the ones being produced by the
"Omoluabi Garment Factory" under the
management of Sam and Sarah of Lagos,
an Osogbo Chief magistrate court presided over by Mr. Adebayo Lasisi, on Friday ordered four persons including a company to be remanded in Ilesha prison custody.
The charge sheet reads in part: "That you Abdulkareem Saheed (35), Olatunji Saheed (35), Ismaila Akinlosotu (49), Japhlet Banudai Vincent (50) and Cotzyn Nigeria Limited Plot "A" Block IX Ilupeju Industrial Estate of Lagos State on same date, time and place at the said aforementioned did knowingly make, distribute and sell infringed copies of Osun public school uniform without any licence or authority from Omoluabi Garment Factory under the management of Sam and Sarah."
Learnt Governor Rauf Aregbesola's wife is in charge of the centralised production and sale of the uniform, and to make sure that parents in Osun State keep paying N1,800, four people who made the uniform and were selling it for N1,000 are now in Ilesha prison!
