A Central Area Court sitting in Kasuwan Nama in Jos, on Tuesday sentenced a 28-year-old cleaner, Moses Azenbe, to two years in a correctional centre for stealing an armoured cable.

A panel of two Magistrates, Ghazali Adam and Hyacinth Dolnaan, sentenced the convict after he pleaded guilty.

The panel however gave him an option of N15, 000 fine.

The panel said that the judgement would serve as a deterrent to those who would want to indulge in such criminal act.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Ibrahim Gokwat, told the court that the case was reported on November 2 at the Laranto Police Station by Nwosu Uwaezuoke.

Gokwat said that during police investigation, the armoured cable was recovered from the convict.

The prosecutor said that the offence was punishable under Section 272 of the Plateau Penal Code Law.
