For making an attempt to steal NITEL cables, along Eric Moore Road, Surulere, Lagos, on 15 October, 2008, Uzoma Duru, 21, has been sentenced to three years imprisonment by the Surulere Chief Magistrate’s Court.

Uzoma was arraigned on a two-count charge of conspiracy to commit felony, to wit, stealing with others at large, an offence punishable under Sections 516 and 509 of the Criminal Code, Cap.C17, Vol. 2, Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2003.

In her judgement, the magistrate, Mrs. Y.O. Aje-Afunwa, stated that the penalty for the offence was seven-year imprisonment, but because the accused pleaded guilty to the charges preferred against him, she decided to be lenient to him.

She sent the accused to a three-year jail term on each count charge with hard labour and without option of fine. The sentence is to run concurrently.

This is a great piece of history, which is dear to our hearts as people and very much appreciated.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
