32 year old man in court for stealing mobile phone.

Odo, who resides  at Gwarinpa Estate, Abuja, was sentenced  on a two-count charge of criminal breach of trust and cheating.

The Area Court judge, Abubakar Sadiq, however, gave Odo an option of  N10,000  fine while also  paying  the complainant N67, 000 as compensation.

The convict had earlier pleaded guilty and begged the court for leniency.

Sadiq said that the punishment would have been stiffer if the convict had not saved the court the rigour   of protracted prosecution.

He also warned the convict to be of good behaviour.

The Prosecutor Mrs. Florence Auhioboh, had told the court that on April 24, Blessing Nku-ekpany of Katempe Extension, Abuja, had reported the matter at Gwarinpa Police Station.

Auhioboh said that on April 22, the complainant gave Odo N67 000 to buy materials for the construction of bed and dressing mirror.

He said the convict refused  to buy the materials or execute the job but dishonestly converted the N67,000 to his personal use.

The prosecutor added that during police investigation the convict made a confessional statement.

Auhioboh said the offence contravened sections 312 and 322 of the Penal Code.
