A Gudu Upper Area Court, Abuja, on Thursday ordered the remand of 24-year-old Ibrahim Mohammed in prison custody for stealing an Aiwa Ipad valued at N180,000.

The judge, Mr Umar Kagarko, ordered the remand of the defendant as he pleaded guilty and adjourned the case till April 17 for conviction and sentencing.

Kagarko, who recognised Mohammed as a `senior customer’ of the court, said: “Mohammed has appeared before me and has been convicted for various offences of theft more than 12 times before this appearance.”

Mohammed of NEPA Junction, Apo, who pleaded guilty to the charges of criminal trespass and theft preferred against him, told the judge that it was the devil that caused him to steal.

Earlier, prosecutor Fidelis Ogbobe, told the court that one Ifeanyi Kingsley of Phigba Sama, Apo, FCT, reported the matter at the Apo Police Station on March 3.

“On March 3, Mohammed criminally went to the complainant’s shop and pretended to be a genuine customer.

“He then stole the complainant’s Ipad valued at N180, 000 from the shop and disappeared until March 8, when he was sighted and arrested,” Ogbobe said.

He also said that during police investigation, he confessed to have sold the Ipad to a prospective buyer.

The prosecutor said that the offence was contrary to Sections 348 and 287 of the Penal Code.
