Abuja Actress Jailed for Stealing

FEMALE CUFFED A 26-year-old actress Nancy Ndukwe of Jikwoyi, Abuja, was sentenced by Abuja Senior Magistrates’ Court on September 6, 2013, Friday. She was convicted for two months of imprisonment for stealing an IPad, IPhone and jewellery.

Cpl. Paul Anigbo, on the side of the prosecution, told the court that the matter was reported at the Lugbe Police Station by one Faith Njoku of Kapuwa Village, Lugbe, Abuja on September 2.

The prosecutor told the court that Nancy Ndukwe visited her friend Njoku on the above-mentioned date and stole her IPad, IPhone and jewellery, all valued at N190,000.

Cpl. Anigbo gave the value of each of the items as reported by the complainant: IPad – N100,000; IPhone – N50,000 and jewellery – N40,000.

The prosecutor informed that the police discovered all the stolen items in the convict’s possession. Cpl. Anigbo stated that the offence contravened the provisions of Section 287 of the Penal Code.

The convict pleaded guilty to the charge but begged the court for mercy. Nancy Ndukwe said:

“I stole the items due to frustration. I have a one-year-old son to cater for. I am sorry and I promise not to do such again.”

Mr. Celestine Odo, the Magistrate, sentenced the convict for two months imprisonment or an option of N6,000 fine.
