Man jailed 5 months for theft

A Grade 1 Area Court, Kado, Abuja, on Friday sentenced 35 year-old Nuhu Salam to five months in prison for stealing clothing items worth over N500,000.
Salam, who resides at Wuse Zone 2, Abuja, was convicted on one-count charge of stealing after he prayed the court to temper justice with mercy.
The convict said he had no intention of stealing the items but had urgent need for money which prompted him to steal.
The Presiding Judge, Alhaji Ahmed Ado, however gave Salam an option to pay a fine of N4, 000 and warned him to desist from committing crimes.
Ado said the sentence would serve as deterrent to other would be offenders.
Earlier, the Prosecutor, Zannah Dalhatu, told the court that Salam stole clothes, one cooler and two travelling bags, all valued at N534, 000 from occupants of Kado Estate, Abuja.
He said Salam confessed to the crime during investigation and the stolen properties were recovered.
The prosecutor said that the offence is punishable under Section 289 of the Penal Code.
