A Kaduna Chief Magistrates’ Court on Thursday ordered that a 23-year-old student, Rabiu Garba, be given 12 strokes of the cane for stealing a laptop and two cell phones.

The Magistrate, Ibrahim Emmanuel, sentenced Garba after he pleaded guilty to the two-count of trespass and theft.

The convict, who resides at Badiko in Kaduna, who had pleaded guilty earnestly appealed for leniency from the court, vowing to reform his ways.

The magistrate held that the court was lenient to Garba because he did not waste the court’s time by his admission of guilt.

He, however, advised the convict to be of good behaviour and desist from crime in the future.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Inspector Chidi Leo told the court that Yusuf Usman, of the same address with the defendant reported the matter at Gabasawa Police Station on May 3.

According to Leo, Garba trespassed into the complainant’s room and made away with his laptop valued at N220,000 and two phones valued at N342,000.

He said that the items were recovered from the defendant in the process of disposing them but the laptop was no longer functional.

The prosecutor said that the offences contravened the Penal Code of Kaduna State, 2017.
