Socialite Who Shared Fuel As Souvenir At Lagos Party Faces Imprisonment

Ms Ogbulu Chindinma Pearl, a socialite, was convicted of distributing petrol as a memento during a party by a Lagos mobile court sitting at the State Task Office in Oshodi on Friday.

Chief Magistrate Kehinde Ogundare presided over the court, which found Ogbolu guilty of violating sections 251(1), 168 (1), and 244 of the Lagos State Criminal Law, 2015, as well as Section 195 (2)(b) of the Lagos State Environmental Management Protection Law, 2017.

She was therefore sentenced to three months in jail on the first count, with a payment of N15,000 as an option, and one year in prison on charges 2 and 3, with a fine of N500, 000 as an option.

The Lagos State Police Command recently detained Pearl Chidinma Ogbolu, also known as Erelu Okin, for her controversial political organization in the state.

On March 4, she was detained and accused with selling kegs of fuel as souvenirs during an event hosted at the Havilah Events Centre on Oniru, Victoria Island.

Ogbolu had said that she merely wanted to express thanks to guests who came to her chieftaincy installation ceremony despite the difficult circumstances caused by gasoline shortages when she offered petrol as a memento in Lagos State during her event.

The Lagos socialite was found guilty of the accusations leveled against her, with the judge stating that the prosecution had established the case against the defendant beyond all reasonable doubts.
