Jail

Rabiu, a resident of Jabi Park, Abuja, was convicted on a one-count charge of mischief. The offence is contrary to Section 327 of the Penal code.

Rabiu pleaded guilty to the count and begged for leniency.

The Presiding Judge, Sadiq Abubakar, however, gave the convict an option of N10, 000 fine saying that the punishment would serve as a deterrent to others.

The Prosecutor, Mr Dalhatu Zannah, had told the court that one Farid Mohammed, the complainant of Wushishi Crescent, CBN quarters, Utako Abuja, reported the matter at Utako Police Station on March 22.

Zannah told the court that the convict committed the offence on March, 22, at Jabi area about 1.30 a.m.

The prosecutor said the convict criminally broke the complainant’s car door glass and was trying to remove the car stereo when he was caught and handed over to the police.

He said that during police investigation, the convict confessed to the crime adding that the stereo was recovered from him.
