A Magistrates’ Court in Ogun on Tuesday sentenced a 27-year-old man, Ayodeji Oluwole, to three months’ imprisonment for stealing two Bajaj motorcycles valued N333,000.
Oluwole, whose address was not provided, was charged with two counts of conspiracy and stealing.
In her ruling, the magistrate, A. O. Adeyemi, sentenced the convict to three months’ imprisonment without any option of fine.
Adeyemi said that the prosecutor had proved his case beyond reasonable doubt that the convict was guilty of the charges preferred against him.
The convict had, however, pleaded not guilty to the offences.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp E. O. Adaraloye, told the court that the convict committed the offences on May 22 at about 00.30 a.m. at Oko-baale, Ilogbo road in Ota.

He said that the offences contravened Sections 390(9) and 516 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006.
