Adamu Buga, a 28-year-old securityguard will spend the next six months at Kirikiri Prisons, Lagos, for burglary.  

The Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos gave the judgment after Buga pleaded guilty. Chief Magistrate Shomade sentenced him to six months’ imprisonment without an option of fine “this will act as a deterrent to others,” he said.

The prosecutor, Raji Akeem, told the court that the offence was committed in September at GAK Universal Allied Industries Ltd, Amuwo Odofin, Lagos. He said the accused, a security guard, whose address was not given, entered one of the offices by breaking the ceiling and door.

The prosecutor said the broken ceiling and door were valued at N75,000. “The accused stole N99,250,000 and a plasma television, valued at N150,000. Efforts to locate him failed until he was seen by one of the workers, who shouted. A passerby helped in apprehending him,” he said.

The offence contravenes sections 406, 287 and 350 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
