Anigbo told the court that Ndukwe reported that
her friend, Njoku visited her on the said date and
stole the items all valued at N190,000.
Anigbo listed the price of each of the items as
reported by the complainant as iPad, (N100,000),
iPhone (N50,000) and Jewellery (N40,000).
He said that during police investigation, the items
were found in the convict’s possession.
The prosecutor said that the offence contravened

The convict pleaded guilty to the charge but
begged the court for mercy.

year-old son to cater for. I am sorry and I promise
not to do such again,” she said.
The Magistrate, Mr Celestine Odo, however, gave
the convict two months imprisonment or an option
of six thousand naira f
