A Jos Area Court, Plateau State, North-Central Nigeria, on Thursday sentenced two friends, both males, to 24 months imprisonment for stealing a tricycle worth N670,000.

The judge, Mr. Thomas Ajitise sentenced Hassan Abdullahi, 30, and Yau Mohammed, 22, following their guilty plea for conspiracy and theft and begged the court for leniency, according to NAN.

Ajitise gave the convicts an option of N50,000 fine each.

Earlier, the prosecution counsel, Inspector Labaran Ahmed, told the court that the case was reported at the Laranto Police Station on January 5, 2023, by Mr. Adam Shuiabu.

Ahmed said that the complainant narrated that the convicts stole his tricycle where it was parked.

The prosecutor further told the court that during police investigation the convicts confessed to the crime and the tricycle was recovered.

He said that the offence contravened the Plateau Penal Code law of Northern Nigeria.
