Scavenger Imprisoned 1 Month For Stealing
Yunusa Musa's uncontrolled love for materials things has bagged him some time in jail.
An Iyaganku Senior Magistrates’ Court, Ibadan, on Friday sent him to one month imprisonment for break-in and stealing items worth N7,500.
The 28-year-old Musa would have been sentenced to community service, but he has no one to stand as guarantor for him.
Senior Magistrate Patricia Adetuyibi, who convicted Musa, said: "After carefully listening to the complainant , and to serve as deterrent to others, the court should have sentenced the defendant to community service.”
"But, he had no one to stand as guarantor for him and has no traceable address, he is hereby sentenced to one month imprisonment with hard labour,” Adetuyibi said.
He was arraigned on a two-count charge of break-in and stealing.
