A Wuse Zone Six Chief Magistrate Court, Abuja, on Wednesday ordered a 35-year-old driver, Ahmed Danladi, to sweep the court premises for two days for stealing.
The police charged Danladi, of No 44 Oran Street, Wuse Zone One, Abuja with a count of theft by servant.
The Chief Magistrate, Omolola Akindele ordered that the convict should report to the court for two days to sweep the premises after he pleaded guilty to the offense without the option of fine.
Earlier the Prosecution Counsel, Peter Ejike, told the court that the complainant, Samuel Joseph of the same address, reported the matter at Wuse Zone Three Police Divisional Headquarters on Sept. 1.
Ejike further said that the convict working as a driver to Joseph’s boss on the same date stole a cleaning machine, whose value was yet unknown and attempted to pass it to a scavenger over the fence.
The prosecutor said during the police investigation, the convict confessed to committing the offense.
He said that the offense contravened the provisions of Section 289 of the Penal Code Law.
