The accused, however, pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy.

When the case came up on Tuesday for facts and sentence, the accused still admitted guilt.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp. Clement Okuoimose, told the court that the accused committed the offence on March 23 at Oluwole Estate, Ogba.

He said the accused went to a mechanic workshop at Oluwole Estate at about 3.00 a.m. with the intent to steal.
