A Magistrates’ court in Ota, Ogun state, has sentenced a 28-year-old man, Akintunde Segun, to one year imprisonment for stealing a water tank belonging to the Nigerian Bar Association.
The court sentenced Segun without a fine option, after pleading guilty to the one count charge of theft.
The prosecution counsel, Titi Olatoye, told the court that Segun had committed the offence on July 30, at about 12:35am, within the court premises.
Olatoye further told the court that the convict had entered the court premises and stole the tank valued at N50,000.
The convict was arrested and taken to the police station after he could not give satisfactory answers to where the tank was being taken to.
The offence contravened the provisions of Section 390 (9) of the Criminal Code, Ogun Laws (2006).
