Artisan sentenced to 24 months for theft

An upper area court sitting in Kasuwan Nama, Jos, on Tuesday, sentenced an artisan, Solomon Clement, to 24 months imprisonment for stealing car accessories.

The Judge, Lawal Suleiman, sentenced Clement after he pleaded guilty to theft, but however, gave the convict an option to pay a fine of N30,000.

Earlier, the police prosecutor, Insp. Monday Dabit, said the complainant, Marcus Umigwe, reported the case at the A Division Police Station on November1.

Dabit alleged that the convict broke into the complainant’s SUV and removed the car stereo, heater and temperature control unit; all valued at N70,000.

Dabit said the offence contravened the provisions of Section 292 of the Plateau Penal Code.
