Today, a Gudu Upper Area Court in Abuja sentenced an 18-year-old artisan, Daniel Jatau, to 10 strokes of cane and to clean the court premises for stealing a generator.

The Upper Area court judge, Alhaji Umar Kagarko, sentenced Jatau after he pleaded guilty to a three-count of charge criminal trespass, housebreaking and stealing.

Kagarko held that if the convict was put in prison at his age; he would mingle with other hardened prisoners, warned the convict to desist from committing further crimes.

Prosecutor Umoh Inah told the court that Linus Ireogbu, the Vigilante Chairman of Kuruduma village, Asokoro, Abuja, reported the matter at the Asokoro Police Station on Sept. 20.

He said Ireogbu caught Jattau with the Tiger generator valued N18, 000 while on a routine patrol within the village.

He said after interrogating Jauta, he confessed that he stole the generator from his neighbour’s room.
Inah said the offences contravened sections 287, 347 and 348 of the Penal Code.
