One of the two men who were caught with stolen panties belonging to a woman has confessed to intending to use them for rituals .
The two bus conductors, Peter Ayodele , 20 ; and Chibuzor David , 21 , were arraigned in Lagos on Tuesday for allegedly stealing three underwear belonging to a housewife.
Ayodele , a resident of Oshodi ; and David , who lives in Ejigbo , Lagos , were charged with two counts of conspiracy and stealing before an Ikeja Magistrates ’ Court .

The Magistrate, Mrs. M . O . Tanimola , ordered that Ayodele be remanded in Kirikiri Prisons pending review of the facts of the case and sentencing ; while David was granted N 80 , 000 bail with two sureties in like sum.
Earlier , the Prosecutor , Insp . Aondohemba Koti , had told the court that the accused on February 6 at Idi -Oro , Mushin , stole three underwear belonging to one Mrs. Kehinde Oladimeji , with intent to use them for ritual.
“ The defendants unlawfully entered the complainant ’ s house in the night while she was sleeping and stole three of her panties .
“ But luck ran out against them as they were caught by a team of policemen on patrol.
“ When they were asked of their mission at the time of the night and could not give a satisfactory answer , they were searched and three female underwear were found on them.
