The judge, Alhaji Ahmed Ado, however, gave the convict, a resident of Utako village, Abuja, an option of N12,000 fine and warned him to desist from committing crimes.

Ado also ordered him to refund N450,000 to the nominal complainant.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Zannah Dalhatu, told the court that one Ikechukwu Henry of G. U. O Plaza, Utako, reported the matter at the Utako Police Station on Feb. 23.

Dalhatu said: “The complainant said that Moses broke into his store and stole 50 engine seats valued at N450,000.

“During police investigation, Moses confessed that he sold the engine seats for N10,000 each, and converted the money to his personal use.’’

The prosecutor said that the offences contravened the provisions of Sections 342 and 287 of the Penal Code.
