The presiding judge, Alhaji Abubakar Sadiq, who ordered the punishment, warned him to desist from committing crime in future.

Adamu, who resides at Aminu Kano Crescent, Wuse 2, Abuja, is facing one-count charge of theft.

He prayed the court to temper justice with mercy that he was under the influence of bad friends.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Florence Auhioboh, told the court that the matter was reported at the Utako Police Station, Abuja, by Isaiah Onwubuya, of Wuse 2, on March 27.

She said that on that same date, the convict stole one bucket of paint and a carton of tiles valued at N10,000.

Auhioboh said the items were recovered from Adamu during police investigation.

The prosecutor said the offence contravened the provisions of Section 288 of the Penal Code.
