A Kabusa Grade I Area Court on Thursday sentenced a 20-year-old applicant, Sadiq Mohammed, to seven months in prison for stealing a Techno cell phone and an  MP3 music player .

The Judge, Ibrahim Kagarko, sentenced Mohammed, who lives in Angwa Hausa Garki village, Abuja, after he pleaded guilty to theft.

The offence, he added, contravened the provisions of Section 288 of the Penal Code Law.
