An Abuja security guard who went to sleep while still on duty, has gotten himself into serious trouble. A Karmo Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, on Wednesday, sentenced a security guard, Zakaria Jacob, to four months imprisonment for sleeping at his duty post, when thieves burgled his employer’s premises. Jacob, 32, who resides at Waru Apo village, Abuja, is standing trail on a count charge of negligent conduct. The convict pleaded guilty, which paved way for burglars to gain access and steal property.
 
The judge, Mr Abubakar Sadiq, however, gave the convict an option to pay N20,000 fine, and warned him to be more committed to his work. Prosecuting counsel, Dalhatu Zannah, had told the court that one Okandza Pieme of 350 Williams St., Utako, Abuja, lodged a petition on the matter at the Utako Police Station on June 3. Zannah said the complainant employed the convict to work as security guard in his house. He said that the convict was expected to be on duty at the time the crime was committed.
 
Zannah said that the convict was sleeping and abandoned his duty post which paved way for burglars to gain access into the complainant’s apartment. He said that the burglars made away with the complainant’s laptop, three Samsung cell phones, valued at N610,000, cash and some other valuable items. The prosecutor said that all efforts by the police to recover the stolen items proved abortive. Zannah said the offence contravened Section 196 of the Penal Code.
