Moses John, a 19-year-old labourer, has been jailed on Friday, to three months imprisonment for stealing building materials by an Upper Area Court, sitting in Kasuwan Nama, Jos.

Judge Lawan Suleiman, sentenced John after he pleaded guilty to the theft, and gave him an option to pay a fine of N5,000.

He said that the judgment would serve as a deterrent to those who would want to indulge in such criminal acts.

Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Insp. Monday Dabit told the court that the case was reported at the Anglo-Jos Police Station on 15 October, by Sunday Tuwan of Good and Base, Jos, who was the complainant.

Dabit said that the convict broke into a new building site and stole building materials worth N58,000.

The prosecutor said that the offence contravened the provisions of Section 336 and 273 of the Plateau State Penal Code Law.
