A Karu Upper Area Court, sitting in Abuja, on Thursday sentenced a 20-year-old man, Idris Abba, to six months in prison for belonging to a gang of thieves and idle persons.
The News Agency of Nigeria reported that the convict, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to the charges of belonging to a gang of thieves and idle persons.
The judge, Ishaq Hassan, however, gave the convict an option of N13,000 fine and warned him to desist from committing a crime.
Earlier, the prosecution counsel, Olarewaju Osho, told the court that on February 16, the convict was seen conducting himself in a suspicious manner.
