An Upper Area Court sitting in Kasuwan Nama in Jos on Thursday sentenced a 25-year-old trader, Abba Arando, to two years’ imprisonment for stealing carrots worth N65,000.

The Judge, Lawal Suleiman, sentenced Armando after he pleaded guilty to trespass, mischief, and theft.

Suleiman, however, gave the convict an option to pay a fine of N20,000.

The judge advised the convict to change his ways and not to engage in crimes.

Earlier, the prosecution counsel, Ibrahim Gokwat told the court that the case was reported at the Laranto Police Station, Jos on September 5 by the complainant, Ahamad Mohammed.

Gokwat said that the convict confessed that he trespassed and harvested carrots worth N65,000 from the complainant’s farm without his consent.

The offense, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 327, 312 and 271 of the Penal Code law.
