A 23-year-old man, Femi Fayemi, has been sentenced to two years imprisonment for stealing cell phones in a church valued at N150,000.
Fayemi was on Monday sentenced after pleading guilty to a two-count charge of stealing and burglary.
Chief Magistrate, B. B. Adebowale, convicted Fayemi without an option of fine, saying his action was contrary to the provisions of Sections 415 and 516 of the Criminal Law of Ogun State, 2006.
The prosecutor, Inspector Abdulkareem Mustapha, had earlier told the court that defendant committed the offence on February 19 at about 3.30 a.m. at Celestial Church of Christ, Joju, Ota.
Mustapha said that the defendant broke into the church to steal different cell phones valued at N150,000, belonging to members of the Church.
