The defendant of Kado, Abuja, was charged with theft, that contravened Section 288 of the Penal code.

A Wuse Senior Magistrates’ Court, Abuja, on Tuesday sentenced one David Okonkwo, a student, to two months imprisonment for stealing a Samsung galaxy cellphone at a night club.

The magistrate, Mohammed Tahir, sentenced Okonkwo after he pleaded guilty to the offence.

“The defendant has no reason why he should not be convicted; I therefore convict him for the offence of theft,’’ Tahir said.

Tahir, however, gave him an option to pay a fine of N10, 000.

The defendant of Kado, Abuja, was charged with theft, that contravened Section 288 of the Penal code.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Adeniyi Oyeyemi, told the court that one James Alfred, a resident of Wuse, Abuja, lodged a complaint against the defendant at the Wuse Zone 3 Police Station on June 23.

He said that the convict, while at the night club located at Wuse stole the Samsung galaxy cell phone that belonged to the complainant.

Okonkwo, who pleaded guilty to the offence, however, begged for leniency.
