Driver jailed 12 months for stealing motorcycle



An Area Court in Jos on Tuesday, sentenced Abba Adam, 24 to 12 months imprisonment for stealing a motorcycle worth N 350,000.

The Judge, Shawomi Bokkos, sentenced the convict after he pleaded guilty to the offence and begged the court for leniency.

The judge also gave the convict an option of N30, 000 fine.

Earlier, the police prosecutor, Insp Labaran Ahmed, told the court that the case was reported at the Laranto police station on Nov. 22, by Mr Shuibu Nuhu.

He said the accused person trespassed into his compound and stole his motorcycle valued N350, 000, from where it was parked.

The prosecutor further told the court that during police investigation, the accused person confessed to have committed the offence and the motorcycle was found in his possession.

The offence, he said, contravened the Plateau State Penal Code law of Northern Nigeria.
