Theft robbery

Court sentences 2 labourers to 4 years imprisonment each for stealing

Greetings everyone!

In accordance with report this afternoon, Two labourers has been sentenced to four years imprisonment for stealing.

Usman Abdullahi and Suleiman Yahaya has been sentenced to four years imprisonment, by an Upper Area Court, located in kasuwan Nama in Jos, for stealing a cell phone.

Meanwhile they were both sentenced to, four years imprisonment after pleading guilty for the offence, by Judge, Lawal Suleiman, who gave them option to pay N40,000 each or to spend two years in prison for theft, N10,000 or to spend one year for conspiracy and also to pay N15,000 as a compensation or to spend another one year in prison.

The judge however, noted that the judgement is to serve as a warning, to anyone who would want to engage in such criminal act.

The truth is that, people are now commiting are manner of crimes because of one reason or another, which is best known to them.

In my opinion, I suggest that the victims should be forgiven, maybe they should be given another punishment, like flogging, rather than spending four years in prison.

What is your opinion concerning this matter?

Kindly drop your opinion at the comment section.
