Student bags jails term for stealing phone

A Jos Upper Area Court in Kasuwan Nama, on Monday, sentenced Shedrack Wilson, 22, to one year imprisonment for stealing a mobile phone.

The Judge, Daniel Damulak, convicted Wilson after pleaded guilty to the one-count charge of theft and begged the court for leniency.

Damulak, however, gave the student an option of N20,000 fine, according to NAN.

The prosecutor, Ibrahim Gowkat, had told the court that the case was reported at the A Division Police station, Jos, on January 31, by one Joseph Okopi.
