Following his sentencing, the Judge, Alhaji Umar Kagarko, warned Abubakar to desist from committing such crimes.

Pleading guilty to the allegation leveled against him, Abubakar, urged the court to temper justice with mercy as hunger had driven him to steal the sandals.

A resident of Area 1, Garki, Abuja, ‎Abubakar was convicted on a two-count charge of criminal trespass and theft.

The prosecutor, Ogubwe Fidelis, told the court that Abubakar trespassed into the house of one Mohammed Dauda on March 11, 2017, and stole a pair of sandals, valued at N2,500.

The court heard that the sandals were recovered from the convict during the course of the police investigations.

Fidelis said that the offences contravened Sections 348 and 287 of the Penal Code.
