Court Jails Man For Stealing Vehicle, Parts

A 34-year-old man, Safijany Mohammed, was on Wednesday sentenced imprisonment for stealing a vehicle.

The order was issued by Malam Aliyu Kagarko of a Grade 1 Area Court sitting at Lugbe, Abuja, who sentenced the convict after he pleaded guilty to the offences of criminal trespass, attempt to steal and stealing preferred against him.

Kagarko, however, granted Mohammed, whose address was not provided, the option of N50,000 fine in lieu of imprisonment.

The prosecutor, Mr Stephen Osho, had earlier informed the court that the convict trespassed into the workshop of one Ismailia Abbas and stole a vehicle, but was caught.

He said the stolen vehicle belonged to a customer of the complainant.

According to Osho, when questioned by the police following his arrest, the convict also confessed to stealing some vehicle parts worth N130,000.

The offences, the prosecutor said, contravened Section 348 and 95 of the Penal Code.

Meanwhile, the Kaduna State Police Command has arrested two armed robbery suspects in Hayin Malam Bello community of the Igabi Local Government Area on Tuesday.

The command’s spokesperson, ASP Mansir Hassan, confirmed the arrest on Wednesday.

Hassan said, “Police received a distress call from Hayin Malam Bello community, that some unscrupulous robbery syndicate on motorcycles were operating in the area.”

He explained that the suspects were using an object suspected to be a gun and dispossessing them of their phones and other valuables.

Hassan added, “On receiving information our operatives stormed the scene and arrested two of the suspects who were all from the Rigasa area in Igabi LGA.”

He said that the gang leader popularly known as T-Pain, who was confirmed to be in possession of an English pistol, escaped.

He, however, said that the investigation was going on in earnest and efforts were being intensified to arrest the fled gang leader.

Hassan appealed for timely and useful information from the residents to nip crimes in the bud.
