Harrison Ezekiel jailed 6 months for stealing

An Apapa Magistrate’s Court sitting at Ajegunle, Lagos has sentenced Harrison Ezekiel, 27, to six months imprisonment for stealing.

Ezekiel was handed the jail term for stealing one Itel and Gionee handsets valued at N65,000 and a laptop valued at N60,000, all valued at N125,000 inside a shop at Agric market, Odunade, Amukoko, Apapa, Lagos.

The convict, a resident of 25, Owoseni Ojo Road, Ajegunle, Lagos from Isoko, Delta State was jailed by Magistrate, A.O Olorunfemi in charge of Court 16, Apapa Magistrate’s Court after he pleaded guilty to the two-count charge of stealing preferred against him by the Police at the Amukoko Division, Apapa, Lagos.

Police alleged that the journey to jail started for the convict on January 24, 2022, when he went to Agric market, Odunade, Amukoko and entered a shop owned by the complainant, Ajayi Yusuf Olatunji with the pretext of buying something.

The police added that in the process of coming for a purchase Ezekiel stole one Itel and Gionee Phones and a laptop and escaped through another exit unknown to him that CCTV cameras had captured him.

Nemesis, however, caught up with him when he went back to the shop again in February 2022 to steal.

The complainant recognized him and raised the alarm which attracted other traders who assisted him to apprehend the convict.

When the Police Counsel, Adega Twonyiman presented the facts of the case before the Court, the convict also pleaded guilty to the allegations and Magistrate A.O Olorunfemi subsequently sentenced the convict to six-month imprisonment without on option of fine.
