A 22-year old Student, Umar Farouk, was on Tuesday sentenced to six months imprisonment at a Kado Grade 1 Area Court Abuja, for stealing two laptops worth N325,000.
Farouk of Jahi Abuja, who pleaded guilty to the charges of criminal tresspass and theft, however, prayed the court to temper justice with mercy and be lenient with him.
Delivering judgment, the Area Court Judge, Mohammed Wakili Justice, convicted and sentenced the him following his admission of the offence.
The Area Court Judge advised the convict to be of good behaviour by using his talent as an IT student to take care of himself and avoid committing crime in future.
The counsel further said the convict ran to an unknown destination, not knowing the CCTV camera captured him, saying during police investigation on July 27, Farouk was arrested.
The offence, Ochayi said, contravened the provisions of the Penal Code Law.
