Business Man Jailed For Stealing Car Gearbox.

Jos Magistrates’ Court, on Wednesday, sentenced a 28-year-old businessman, Peter Sunday, to one-year imprisonment for stealing vehicle parts valued at N200,000.

The Magistrate, Shawomi Bokkos, summarily sentenced Sunday after he pleaded guilty to the charge.

Bokkos, however, gave the convict an option to pay N30,000 and a compensation of N100,000 to the complainant.

The magistrate held that the punishment would serve as a deterrent to other would-be offenders.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Labaran Ahmed, told the court that the case was reported on March 19, at the “B” Police station Bukuru by one Stephen Dung, the complainant.

The prosecutor alleged that the convict had trespassed into a mechanic workshop and stole the gearbox.
