A 22-year-old young man who reportedly stole money at a chemist's shop in old Karmo Market, has been sentenced to prison by a Grade I Area Court sitting in Abuja on Tuesday. A Karmo Grade I Area Court in Abuja on Tuesday sentenced one Wisdom Gabriel, 22, to two-month imprisonment for stealing N170 at a chemist’s shop in old Karmo Market.
The judge, Mr. Abubakar Sadiq, however, gave the convict N5,000 option of fine.
The judge said the sentence would serve as a deterrent to others that may be tempted to commit similar crime.
Gabriel, who resides at Aiko Estate, Life Camp Gwarinpa, pleaded with the judge to temper justice with mercy.
He was found guilty on one-count charge of stealing a box containing N170.
The convict told the court that satan pushed him into the crime.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Zannah Dalhatu, had told the court that one Helen Atusu of old Karmo arrested and brought the convict to Karmo Police Station on March 24, 2017.
Dalhatu said the complainant said that on the same date, the convict broke into her chemist’s shop at old Karmo Market and made away with her box containing N170.
She raised the alarm, which led to the arrest of the convict with the help of one Chukwuma Eze.
The prosecutor said the offence was punishable under Section 287 of the Penal Code.
