A Chief Magistrates’ Court in Kafanchan, Kaduna State has jailed a 35-year-old man, Abdullahi Sani, and his 20-year-old girlfriend, Sarah Paul, for stealing 64 chickens.
The police charged Sani and Paul with criminal conspiracy, housebreaking, theft and mischief, contrary to sections 58, 332, 270 and 312 of the Kaduna State Penal Code.
In his ruling, Magistrate Michael Bawa sentenced Sani to 38 months in a correctional facility and Paul bagged 13 months for her role in the crime.
Bawa also ordered the first convict to pay N600, 000 while the second convict will pay N200, 000 as compensation to the complainant as applied by the prosecution.
Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Insp. Esther Bishen, told the court that one Hilary Garba reported the matter on May 21.
Bishen said the complainant alleged that the convicts broke into his house at night and stole 64 layers valued at N781, 970.
The prosecution said that Paul was arrested while cooking some of the chickens.
She noted that the police recovered cell phones, a television set, generator, mattresses, amplifier, rug carpets from the convicts suspected to have been stolen.
When the charges were read to them, they both pleaded guilty and begged the court for leniency.
The prosecutor thereafter prayed the court to try them summarily in line with section 125 (8) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Law.

Two-year-old girl raped while in hospital’s coronavirus isolation ward
A two-year-old girl was allegedly raped while in a Coronavirus isolation ward at a hospital in South Africa.
The alleged incident happened at the Dr George Mukhari Academic Hospital in Pretoria.
The toddler’s aunt, who chose to remain anonymous to protect the identity of the child, said that the girl was sexually abused while admitted at the hospital
She said the hospital told to the child’s mother that her daughter needed to be placed on an isolation ward after she developed symptoms of Covid-19. After the mother went home, she was contacted later that evening and told the child was crying and appeared to be in serious pain.
The aunt said that after the child had been picked up from the hospital, she appeared to be struggling to walk.
After the mother closely inspected her child she discovered that there had been ‘penetration’, according to the aunt.
Narrating the ordeal, the aunt told News24:
“The mother and child were referred to the George Mukhari Hospital by the KT Motubatse clinic in Soshanguve on June 15,” told News24.
“The nurses at the clinic said since the child was struggling to breathe, she should be taken to George Mukhari Hospital to be tested for coronavirus.
“The hospital called in the evening and told the mother that the child was crying and in pain. They later called around 11pm and said the child was now sleeping. The hospital staff called again in the morning and told my sister to come and pick up her child because she had been discharged. The hospital said the child had tested negative for Covid-19.
“I saw that there was something wrong with the child. As the mother was changing the nappy, she discovered some white fluid on her private parts.
“She initially thought it was medication as the child had been in hospital. But the following day, that same whitish fluid was still coming out,” the aunt told local media.
The girl was taken back to the hospital where a nurse reportedly confirmed that there was an indication that the child had been raped at the isolation ward.
Provincial police spokesperson Brigadier Mathapelo Peters told News24 that a rape case has been opened, with the hospital also conducting its own investigation into the incident.
