Man To Receive 6 Strokes Of Cane For Stealing Phone
A Karmo Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, on Wednesday ordered that one Abdulrahama Sally, be given six strokes of the cane for stealing a mobile phone.
The matter was reported by one Eugene Dauda, of same address with Sally, at the Utako Police Station on March 29.
The convict on that same date, with one person who is now at large, snatched the complainant’s phone valued at N30, 000.
Dalhatu said that the person at large escaped with the phone and Sally was caught with the help of passersby.
But obviously, Sally got that sentence because he pleaded guilty to the two-count charge of joint act and theft.
The judge, Abubakar Sadiq, said after Sally admitted committing the offence, the court decided to be lenient.
However, Justice Sadiq warned that if the guilty Sally were to repeat the offence he would face stiffer penalties.
