The Judge, Mr Lawal Suleiman, sentenced Abdulfatai following his guilty plea, but gave him an option of fine.
“He is to pay N30, 000 or spend 18 months in prison. This judgment should serve as a deterrent to those who would want to indulge in the act of stealing,’’ the judge held.
Dabit said that Abdulfatai stole Saidu’s infinix Hot Note worth N190, 000, from his room.
He said that the police found the phone with Abdulfatai during an investigation, adding that the phone had been given back to the owner.
