Man Receives Six Strokes of Cane For Stealing N200 Tissue Paper [SEE PHOTO]


A Judge of the Gudu Upper Area Court at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), on Monday ordered that a 34-year-old applicant, Anthony Nnakanagu, be given six strokes of cane for stealing four pieces of toilet tissue worth N200.
The Judge, Alhaji Umar Kagarko convicted Nnkanagu, a resident of Airport Road, Abuja, on a two-count charge of criminal trespass and theft.
Earlier, the Prosecutor, Oyeyemi Adeniyi, told the court that one Fidelis Agba attached to Bolton White hotel, Area 11, Garki, Abuja, reported the matter at the Garki Police Station on Jan. 7.
Adeniyi said that the convict trespassed into the said hotel, pretending to be a customer and entered one of the hotel toilets to ease himself, adding that while in the toilet, he dishonestly stole four pieces of toilet paper valued at N200.

He further said that the toilet tissue was found in the convict’s possession and the offences contravened Sections 348 and 287 of the Penal Code.
Nnakanagu, however, pleaded guilty and plead for leniency.

Kagarko, also ordered Nnakanagu to be of good behaviour and desist from committing crime.
