An Akure Magistrate’s Court in Ondo State has convicted and sentenced a middle-aged man, identified as Busuyi Ajibola, to two months’ imprisonment for stealing maize worth N1, 000.

Ajibola was said to have committed the offence at Ago Ego on Idanre Road, Akure, the Ondo State capital on July 30, 2017.

The convict was arraigned on one-count of stealing.

He was described as a notorious thief that had carried out numerous ‘operations’ in Akure and its environs.

The police in charge of the matter, had earlier told the court that the offence committed by the convict was contrary to and punishable under Section 390 of the Criminal Code Cap 37. Vol.1 Laws of Ondo State of Nigeria, 2006.

Ajibola pleaded guilty to the one-count when it was read to him.

His lawyer, Grace Obanigba, however, prayed the court to temper justice with mercy.

She pleaded that the convict was a family man and that the court should consider his wife and children.

In her ruling, the judge, Mrs. Oluwafunmi Edwin, said “on a closer look at the charge and the fact of the case, it was glaring that the convict committed the act deliberately, thus, he was found guilty.”

Mrs Edwin then ruled that Ajibola should be jailed for two months.
