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.
