An Upper Area Court in Abuja has reportedly sentenced a man to six weeks imprisonment Following the theft of two Nokia phones.
The judge, Alhaji Umar Kagarko, passing the judgement on Thursday, June 9, 2016, reportedly gave the suspect, Mr John Okeke, the option of fine in the sum of N8000, and ordered that he be flogged six strokes of the cane.

Alhaji Kagarko also advised Mr Okeke to avoid criminal activities following the punishment for his crime. Mr Okeke was reportedly arraigned on a three-count charge of criminal conspiracy, criminal trespass and theft. According to Vanguard, the Prosecutor, Kufreabasi Ebong, disclosed to the court that one Friday Ahmed of Wumba Village, Abuja, was responsible for reporting the case at the Apo Police Station on May 27, 2016. Ahmed is reported to have claimed that Mr Okeke conspired with one Onye, who is still at large, and criminally trespassed into his room and stole one Nokia telephone and one Itel telephone valued at N10, 000 and N7, 000, respectively. Mr Ebong also revealed that the telephones have been recovered from Okeke during the police investigations, adding that Mr Okeke's offence contravened Sections 97, 348 and 288 of the Penal Code. Mr Okeke reportedly pleaded guilty, Pleading for leniency.
