An Area Court in Jos on Thursday sentenced two drivers to two years imprisonment for stealing two goats belonging to a police officer.

The drivers, Abdulrohomod Mohammed, 22, Umar Ibrahim, pleaded guilty to stealing the two goats. A panel of two magistrates, Adam and Hyacinth Dolnaan, gave the convicts an option of N30,000 fine each.

They also ordered the convicts to pay N40,000 as compensation to the complainants. They held that the judgment would serve as deterrent to those who would want to indulge in such criminal acts.

Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Insp Monday Dabit told the court that the case was reported on May 29 at the Anglo-Jos Police station by the complainants, one Insp Chris Henry of Plateau state Police Command.
