A 29-year-old man, Fatai Aliyu, was on Monday sentenced to two years’ imprisonment by an Osogbo Magistrates Court in Osun for stealing 10 bowls of rice and four bottles of wine.
The convict pleaded guilty to the two-count charge of theft and break-in when he appeared before Magistrate Olusola Aluko.
Aluko ordered the convict to be kept in Ilesa Prison to serve his jail term. Earlier, the prosecutor, SP Mireti Wilson, had told the court that Aliyu committed the offences on Oct. 29, at about 2a.m., at Oke-Ayepe area of Osogbo.
