Man bags 4 months imprisonment for stealing phone

A Kubwa Grade 1 Area Court in the FCT has sentenced one Mohammed Abdul to four months in prison for stealing a cell phone.
Abdul, 27, residing at Arab Road in Kubwa was found guilty on charges bordering on criminal trespass and theft.
The prosecutor, Mr Babajide Olanipekun, had told the court that a complainant reported the matter at the Kubwa Police Station on Sept. 5. He said Abdul trespassed into the shop of the complainant and stole his Techno 7 cell phone, valued at N32, 000.
Olanipekun said the offence contravened sections 342 and 287 of the Penal Code.
Abdul pleaded guilty as charged but pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy.
Judge Abdulwahab Mohammed, however, gave Abdul an option of fine of N20, 000 and ordered him to pay N32, 000 as compensation to the owner of the phone, identified as Mr Nana Hawal.
Mohammed warned Abdul to desist from committing crime or to be ready to face the consequences. (NAN)
