Man gets 8 months imprisonment for stealing 34 pieces of iron doors

A magistrate court sitting in Ota, Ogun State, has sentenced 47-year old, Adungba Taiwo to 8 months imprisonment for theft.

The convict whose address the court failed to mention, reportedly stole 34 pieces of iron doors valued at N805,000.

In her ruling, chief magistrate Mrs. A. O Adeyemi sentenced him to eight months imprisonment with an option of N5,000 fine. She also asked the convict to restitute N805,000 to the complainant.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp E.O. Adaraloye, told the court that the convict committed the offence on Sept. 22 at about 5:00 p.m. at Arima St. before Odo Eran, Ota.

Adaraloye said that the convict collected 35 pieces of iron doors from the complainant, with the intention to pay later.

“But instead of fulfilling the agreement between them, he converted the money to personal use,” he said.

He said that the offence contravened Section 390 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006.
