Jobless Man Sentenced To One Year In Jail Over N10,000

An Igbosere Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, has sentenced an unemployed man, Oluwafemi Daisi, to one year imprisonment for stealing N10,000 from a Nigerian Prison Service (NPS) officer.

Magistrate A. T. Omoyele gave the verdict following Daisi’s plea of guilt to a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing.

The Magistrate sentenced 35yrs old Daisi without an option of fine.

The convict was arraigned on April 5 alongside one Tijani Yussuf, 33, who pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge.

Prosecuting Sergeant Cyriacus Osuji said the duo and others at large committed the offence on April 3, at about 10:00pm at the Adeniji Adele area of Lagos.

Osuji said they stole N10,000 from the complainant, Peter Obauwama of Nigeria Prison Service, Alagbon, Ikoyi Lagos.

He said Obauwama’s car broke down on the road and the defendant and his accomplices came and pretended to help but searched his car and stole the said money.

The offence, the prosecutor added, contravened Sections 287 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
