He had been expecting salary increment for some time now, but the rise was not forthcoming.
Apparently fed up of the way he was being treated by his Chinese boss, store keeper, Abubakar Hussaini, trespassed into the complainant’s house and stole a traveling bag containing five wrist watches, two bangles, four T -shirts and credentials.
He was reported to the police, and after investigation, all items were returned except for the credentials of Mr Jack Jiang already burnt.
When the matter appeared in a Kubwa Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, the judge, Abdulwahab Mohammed, sentenced Hussaini to 12 months imprisonment, but gave him a N20,000 option of fine.
He also warned Hussaini to be of good behaviour and desist from committing crime.
The prosecutor, John Okpa, had told the court that Jiang reported the matter at the Area Command, Life Camp, Abuja on August 26.
He said that Hussaini criminally trespassed into the complainant’s house and stole a traveling bag containing five wrist watches, two bangles, four T -shirts and credentials.
Okpa said that all the said items were valued at N1.5 million.
The prosecutor said that four wrist watches, two bangles, two T-shirts and the traveling bag were recovered from Hussaini during police investigations.
He further said that Hussaini burnt the complainant’s credentials, adding that the offences contravened Sections 348, 336 and 288 of the Penal Code.
