Man jailed 5 months for stealing phones

A Magistrate Court in Minna on Friday sentenced a 28-year-old man, Mohammed Yakubu, to five months imprisonment for stealing two phones.

Yakubu, who was arraigned on two charges of criminal trespass and theft, had pleaded guilty but appealed for mercy.

In her ruling, the Magistrate, Mrs Sa’adatu Gambo, sentenced the accused to five months in prison.

Gambo, however, gave the convict an option of N15, 000 fine.

Earlier, the Police Prosecutor, Insp. Ahmed Ali, had told the court that Danlami Kassim and Christiana Auta, both complainants, reported the matter at the Tudun Wada Police Station on Nov. 6.

Ali quoted the complainants as alleging that the convict trespassed into their respective offices at the State Secretariat, Minna, and made away with their phones.

He said both phones were recovered from the accused during police investigation.

Ali said that the offences contravened sections 348 and 287 of the Penal Code Law.

He prayed the court to try Yakubu summarily in line with section 157 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Law. (NAN)
