A Wuse Zone 2 Magistrates’ Court in Abuja on Wednesday sentenced a 27-year old unemployed graduate, Mukaila Akanni, to one month imprisonment for stealing a laptop at the American Embassy in Abuja.

Magistrate Fatima Bukar convicted Akanni of Peace Village, Lugbe, Airport Road, after he pleaded guilty to the charges leveled
against him.

Bukar, however, gave the convict an option to pay a fine of N 50,000. Earlier,the prosecutor, John
Ijagbemi of the lFCT Police Command, said that one
Johnson Adeyemi of American Embassy reported the case at Central Police Station Abuja on Nov. 26.
According to him, the convict entered the security post of the embassy and stole the laptop.

The prosecutor said the security guard on duty at the embassy apprehended the convict on his way out.
He said that the offence contravened provision of Section 287 of Penal Code Law.

The convict, however, pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy, saying he was a first offender.
He said that he was hungry and had not secured a job since he graduated from the Federal Polytechnic Nassarawa in Nassarawa State.
