Court jails mason over stolen burglarproof bars
An Area Court in Jos on Friday sentenced a mason, Kayimu Bakam, 39, to one-month imprisonment over stolen burglarproof bars.
Judge Daniel Damulak sentenced the convict after he pleaded guilty to possessing stolen property and begged the court for leniency.
The judge gave the convict an option of a N5,000 fine.
Prosecution counsel Ibrahim Gowkat told the court that the case was reported at the ‘A’ Division Police station on September 9 by PC Friday Idowu.
He said the constable brought him to the station when he could not explain how he got the burglarproof bars.
The prosecutor further told the court that during the police investigation, the accused confessed that he bought the burglarproof bars from an unknown person.
