Man Gets 6 Months Imprisonment Over 46 Eggs
A resident of Mabushi in Abuja, Musa Abdullahi, has been asked to spend the next six months in prison for stealing 46 pieces of eggs.
This is according to a sentence delivered on Friday, 27 September, 2014 by Senior Magistrate Grace Adebayo-Eisapeat at the Wuse Zone 2 Senior Magistrates’ Court, Abuja, Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
The magistrate handed down the judgment after the convict had pleaded guilty to committing the crime, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.
It was gathered that Adebayo-Eisape, who told the convict that the judgment was to serve as a lesson to others who might want to commit the same crime, also gave Abdullahi an option of N30, 000 fine.
The accused, a sales representative to one Salisu Datti of Wuse Market, Abuja was said to have been carrying out this crime for a long time before he was caught on 21 September.
The Prosecutor, Cpl. Umar Ango, told the court that the case was reported at Wuse Police Station by one Paul Ezeugwu, one of the security guard in Wuse Market.
According to Ango, the convict confessed at the police station that he has been committing this crime for a long time.
The value for the 46 pieces of eggs is N1, 380, Ango informed.
He also stated that the offence committed by Abdullahi contradicts Section 287 of the Penal Code.
