A Nigerian man by the name Aminu Ali, has been sentenced by a Grade I Area Court, Mpape, Abuja to three months imprisonment on Monday for attempting to steal a car wash equipment.
Mr Ali was sentenced by Judge Salihu Ibrahim after he pleaded guilty to the attempted crime
Mr Ali was ab initio given the option of paying the sum of N10,000 fine but following the argument by the prosecution counsel M.M. Augustine, who told the court that the convict and his accomplice, who is still at large, conspired and trespassed into a compound where a car-wash business was being operated and attempted to steal the equipment, the judge resorted to the sentence of a three months jail time.
Augustine said the case was reported at the Garki Police Station by Mohammed Garba of Old CBN Quarters, Abuja. He said that the offence violated the provisions of sections 97, 348 and 95 of the Penal Code.
That’s better for such Act
