A 30-year-old man identified as Maruf Ojo was sentenced to jail today by an Osun State magistrate Court for Stealing Plantain.

Maruf was arraigned before a Magistrate A. Adebayo for stealing Plantain worth 55,000 Naira.

The Plantain worth 55,000 Naira was stolen by the defendant belonging to Oladipupo Sunday at Oke-Ora village, Ile-Ife.

Inspector Sunday Osanyintuyi, the police prosecutor confirmed the allegation while informing the court that the crime took place on the 17th of July, 2020.

The defendant Maruf pleaded guilty to the one-count charge of stealing while his defence Counsel Mrs Omoyeni, pleaded with the magistrate to temper justice with mercy.

The Magistrate considered the fact that the defendant was a first time offender but said "no sinner must go unpunished". He therefore sentenced the defendant to one month in Jail for his crime.

He however gave the defendant an option of 1,000 Naira fine.
