Actress bags 2 months imprisonment for stealing

06 September 2013, 18:03

Abuja - An Abuja Senior Magistrates’ Court on Friday sentenced an actress, Nancy Ndukwe, 26, of Jikwoyi, Abuja, to two months imprisonment for stealing an Ipad, IPhone and Jewellery.

The Police Prosecutor, Cpl. Paul Anigbo, told the court that the matter was reported at the Lugbe Police Station by one Faith Njoku of Kapuwa Village, Lugbe, Abuja on Sept. 2.

Anigbo told the court that Ndukwe reported that her friend, Njoku visited her on the said date and stole her Ipad, IPhone and Jewellery, all valued at N190 000.

Anigbo listed the price of each of the items as reported by the complainant as Ipad, (N100 000), IPhone (N50 000) and Jewellery (N40 000).

He said that during police investigation, the items were found in the convict’s possession.

The prosecutor said  that the offence contravened the provisions of Section 287 of the Penal Code.

The convict pleaded guilty to the charge but begged the court for mercy.

“I stole the items due to frustration. I have a one-year-old son to cater for. I am sorry and I promise not to do such again,” she said.

The Magistrate, Celestine Odo, however, gave the convict two months imprisonment or an option of six thousand naira fine.
