Kaduna woman sentenced for stealing trousers, wrappers
A Kaduna chief magistrates’ court on Wednesday ordered a 29-year-old woman, Sarah Jacob, to sweep the court premises for three weeks for stealing eight pieces of wrappers and six trousers worth N158,000.
The convict, who resides in Barnawa, Kaduna, pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal trespass and theft and pleaded for leniency.
Magistrate Ibrahim Emmanuel, who did not give the convict an option to pay any fine, warned her to desist from committing crimes.
Mr Emmanuel also ordered the police to release the recovered wrappers to the complainant, Felicia Dauda.
Prosecution counsel Chidi Leo told the court that the complainant reported the matter at the Barnawa Police Station on December 9.
He said the convict entered the complainant’s shop in Barnawa Complex and stole eight pieces of the wrapper and six pairs of trousers worth N158,000.
He said the convict confessed during the police investigation.
