Ex-convict jailed 3 months for stealing in church

An ex-convict has bagged a 3 months jail sentence for stealing from a church.

Prison bars

The Presiding Judge, Alhaji Abubakar Sadiq, said that the sentence was without an option of fine because the accused did not show remorse from his previous conviction.

The judge said that the sentence would serve as deterrent to others and warned the accused to desist from committing crimes in future.

Naziru, an iron scrap trader who resides at Karmo Village, was convicted on a two-count charge of stealing and illegal entering.

In his plea, the convict prayed the court to temper justice with mercy, claiming he was absent minded when he committed the offence.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Florence Auhioboh, told the court that the accused trespassed into Pure Word Assembly Sabbath Church Karmo, Abuja and stole five chairs.

Auhioboh said that Naziru confessed to the police that he committed the offence.
