Court sentences mechanic to 4 months imprisonment for stealing car radiator

A Grade I Area Court in Karu, FCT, on Friday sentenced a 20-year-old mechanic, Ahmed Mohammed, to four months imprisonment for stealing a car radiator.

Mohammed had pleaded guilty to a two-count charge of criminal trespass and theft.

He, however, pleaded for leniency.

The judge, Inuwa Maiwada, gave him an option of N10, 000 fine and warned him to desist from crime.

Earlier, prosecution counsel, Ayotunde Adeyanju, told the court that Mr Mathias Mustapha, a security guard attached to Kugbo Mechanic Village, reported the case at the Karu Police Station on Jan. 24.

He said that Mohammed trespassed into a shop at the Mechanic Village and stole a car radiator worth N50, 000.
