Man jailed three months for stealing books


A Karmo Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, on Wednesday sentenced a 20-year-old man, Sadiq Ahmed, to three months imprisonment for stealing books and window frames.

Ahmed, of Jabi Motor Park, had pleaded guilty to a count charge of trespass and stealing, punishable under Section 287 of the Penal Code.

The judge, Abubakar Sadiq, said that the punishment would serve as deterrent to other would be offenders.

The prosecutor, Mr Dalhatu Zannah, had told the court that one Christopher Moses of Utako, Abuja, reported the matter at the Utako Police Station on March 4.

Zannah told the court that on the same date at about 3 a.m. the convict dishonestly trespassed into house No. 29 at Utako to steal the items.

He said the convict criminally vandalised the complainant’s window and made away with his books, but he was apprehended, and the items recovered.

He said during police investigation, Ahmed admitted committing the offence.
