2 men bag 2 months for generator tank theft

Abuja – A Kado Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, on Tuesday sentenced two men — Ali Idris and Shamsu Ibrahim — to one month imprisonment each for stealing a generator tank.

The convict, who both resides at Jabi Motor Park, Abuja, had pleaded guilty to the charge.

The Judge, Alhaji Abubakar Sadiq, said the sentence would serve as a deterrent to others.

Sadiq, however, gave them an option of N5, 000 fine each.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp. Simon Ibrahim, told the court that a police patrol team from Utako Police Station, Abuja, arrested and brought the accused to the station on July 20 for stealing the generator tank.
