A middle aged family man identified as Busuyi Ajibola, has been sentenced to prison by the Akure Magistrate court for stealing N1000 corn.
Ajibola was said to have committed the offence at Ago Ego on Idanre Road, Akure, the Ondo State capital on July 30, 2017.
The court sentenced the suspect to two months behing bars.
The convict was arraigned on one-count of stealing.
He was described as a notorious thief that had carried out numerous ‘operations’ in Akure and its environs.
Ajibola pleaded guilty to the one-count when it was read to him.
His lawyer, Grace Obanigba, however, prayed the court to temper justice with mercy.
She pleaded that the convict was a family man and that the court should consider his wife and children.
In her ruling, the judge, Mrs. Oluwafunmi Edwin, said
“on a closer look at the charge and the fact of the case, it was glaring that the convict committed the act deliberately, thus, he was found guilty.”
Mrs Edwin then ruled that Ajibola should be jailed for two months.
