Physinews Reports: A Kano Senior Magistrates’ Court sitting in
Rijiyar Zaki on Monday sentenced one
Rabiu Sani, 22, to 30 months imprisonment
for stealing slippers.

The Senior Magistrate, Aminu Fagge,
sentenced Sani after he pleaded guilty to a
one-count charge.


Fagge did not give the convict, a resident
of Aisami Quarters in Kano an option of
fine.

that Surajo Umar of Kurna Quarters, Kano,
reported the case to Nasarawa Police
Division, Kano, on Sept. 16.
Sale said on the same date at about 8 p.m
the convict went to the complainant’s
business place at Gidan Gashash Singer
Market Kano.

He said Sani “used razor blade and tore
the sack where the complainant Umar kept
his goods and stole one roll of bath room
slippers containing 35 pairs valued N6,
000.

Sale also told the court that the convict
was charged for theft at Chief Magistrate
Court and sentenced to three months
imprisonment or a fine of N10, 000 on Feb.
5, 2016.

He added that Sani was also sentenced to
six months imprisonment or a fine of N20,
000 at the same court on April 7, for theft.

The prosecutor said this was the fourth
time the accused was arraigned for theft
this year, stressing that the offence
contravened Section 285 of the Penal
Code.

Similarly, a Jos Chief Magistrate’s Court
last Thursday sentenced two women,
Karkuzu Raymond, 50, and Stella
Alechenu, 45, to 10 months imprisonment
each, for receiving stolen rice and beans .
