The Judge, Lawal Suleiman sentenced Usman and Yahaya after they pleaded guilty to the offense.

Suleiman, however, gave the convicts  option to pay N40, 000 each or to spend two years in prison for theft, N10, 000 each or a year for conspiracy and N15, 000 each as compensation or another one year in prison.

He said the judgment would serve as deterrent to those who would want to indulge in such criminal act of stealing.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Ibrahim Gokwat, told the court that the case was reported at the Laranto Police station on July 5 by one Phoebe Zakka of Farin Gada Jos, who was the complainant.

The prosecutor said that the offence contravened the provisions of sections 57 and 272 of the Penal Code of Plateau.
