An Abuja grade one area court has sentenced Richard Christian and Komolafe Shegun to six months imprisonment each for stealing seven mobile phones at a Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry Church located at the Utako area of the metropolis.
Both men, aged 24, were charged on two counts of conspiracy and stealing; charges they pled guilty to and advocated for leniency.
The case prosecutor, Dalhattu Zannah, told the court both men committed the crime, which contravened sections 79 and 287 of the Penal code, on the 2nd of February 2018 at about 4.36am. He further revealed that the men dishonestly gained entrance into the church and stole the seven mobile phones belonging to church members.
While delivering the judgement, Justice Abubakar Sadiq gave the two men an option of a N200,000 fine and warned them to desist from criminal activities.
