An Ojo Magistrates’ Court in Lagos sentenced the artisan who pleaded guilty to a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing.
He was arraigned on Dec. 2 before the Magistrate, Mr A. A. Adesanya.
On Tuesday, the court reviewed the facts of the case and tendered in evidence, a written statement of Abdullahi, among other things.
The court admitted the statement as exhibit and convicted and sentenced Abdullahi to a term of six months’ imprisonment on each of the counts.
