Two men sentenced for stealing 7 phones from Mountain of Fire church

A Karmo Grade 1 Area Court sitting in Abuja, on Tuesday sentenced two men, Richard Christian and Komolafe Shegun, to 6 months imprisonment each for stealing seven cell phones in a church.

Christian and Shegun, both 24-year-old, were arraigned on a 2-count charge of conspiracy and stealing.

The Prosecutor Dalhatu Zannah, told the court that the convicts committed the offences on Feb. 2, at the Mountain of Fire Ministry Church, Utako, Abuja.

Zannah said that one Michael Idikuiri of the Mountain of Fire Ministry Church, Utako reported the matter at the Utako Police Station.

He said the convicts dishonestly entered into the church premises at about 4:36 a.m. and stole the seven cell phones belonging to worshipers.

According to him, the convicts admitted committing the offences during interrogation and begged for leniency.

The offences, according to the prosecutor, contravened Sections 79 and 287 of the Penal Code.

The judge, Abubakar Sadiq, however, gave each of the convicts an option of N20, 000 fine and warned them to desist from committing crime.
