The Grade I Area Court of Karu, Abuja, sentenced a teenager, Hassan Matthew, to five months in prison on Wednesday for stealing a gas cylinder worth N5,000.

The judge, Inuwa Maiwada convicted Mathew after he pleaded guilty to breaking and entering and robbery.

Maiwada, who gave the convict an option of a fine of 30,000 nairas, warned him to desist from committing crimes.

The judge also ordered that the convict undergo in-depth religious studies in prison for a better character transformation.

Earlier, the prosecutor Ayotunde Adeyanju told the court that Sara Joseph from Kpeyegi, Abuja reported the matter to the Karu police station on 3 October.

He said the convict illegally entered Joseph’s store in Kugbo Mechanic Village, Abuja and stole a gas cylinder, valued at N5,000 on September 29.

The prosecutor said that the crime contravened the provisions of articles 348 and 288 of the Criminal Code Law.
