Court jails man for stealing water tank

A Abeokuta Magistrates’ Court on Friday sentenced a 39-year-old man, Kazeem popoola, to one year in prison for stealing a water tank.

The police charged Mohammed, whose address was not disclosed, with break-in and theft.

Magistrate I. O Abudu ruled that Popoola was guilty of the charges against him, adding that the prosecution had proven its case beyond a reasonable doubt.

Abudu therefore sentenced Popoola to one year in prison without the option of a fine.

Earlier, prosecution lawyer ASP Olakunle Shonibare told the court that the convict committed the offense on April 12, 2020 in the Ijeja area of ​​the Igbore road to Abeokuta.

Shonibare said the convict broke into Mr. Olatunde Tella’s house and stole a Geepee water tank worth N 35,000.

The prosecutor noted that the offense violated Articles 411 (2) and 390 (9) of the Ogun Penal Code Acts, 2006.
