Oredo Chief Magistrates’ Court in Benin on Monday sentenced a 31-year-old man, Adamu Gaji, to three years’ imprisonment for stealing two cows in Edo State.

The police prosecutor, ASP Patrick Agbonifo, told the court that the convict on June 10, 2019 at Amagbe community stole two cows belonging to one Mr Ogieriaki Omoruyi, which are valued at N700,000.

“Mr Omoruyi employed Gaji to take care of his cows. On the fateful day, Gaji took the cows to the bush and did not return with the two cows,” he said.

The prosecutor said the offence contravened Section 390(8) (9) of the Criminal Code Cap. 48 Vol. 11, Laws of the defunct Bendel State of Nigeria, 1976, now applicable in Edo.

The Chief Magistrate, Awawu Osayande, sentenced Gaji after she found him guilty of the one count of stealing filed against him.

Osayande, however, gave the convict the option of paying a fine of N180,000.
