The labourer was sentenced by Chief Magistrate Abubakar Adamu without an option of fine after he pleaded guilty to one count of stealing.

The prosecuting officer, Inspector Awaisu Mohammed, told the court that the convict stole the items from his neighbours identified as Sanusi Bello and Abdulmalik Sani.

He explained that the complainants reported the matter to the police station at Ungwan Rogo Sokoto on November 20, 2018, adding that the offence contravened section 288 of the penal code.
