A 26-year-old man, Oluwasegun Olayemi will spend the next 12 months in prison for stealing a laptop and phone valued N119,000, from a businesswoman in Lagos.

Olayemi of no fixed address, was convicted on Wednesday by an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court after he pleaded guilty to the three-count charge of conspiracy, stealing and burglary.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs M.I Dan-Oni, said, “based on the facts of this case, confirmed report and the plea of leniency, I hereby sentence you to 12 months imprisonment without option of fine.”

Earlier the prosecutor, Sgt. Christopher John told the court that the accused committed the offences on June 4 at Nacho Estate, Ayobo, Ikeja.

John said that the convict conspired with others now at large and broke into the apartment of the complainant, Mrs Adenike Oludare, to steal a laptop and phone worth N119, 000.

He said that Olayemi was caught by the complainant’s neighbour who saw the accused and his accomplices acting in a dubious manner.
