A magistrates’ court sitting in Osogbo, Osun State, has sentenced a 30-year-old woman, Sadiat Jimoh, to six months imprisonment for stealing goat.
Sadiat was arraigned yesterday and she pleaded guilty to the two-count charge bordering on conspiracy and stealing.
She told the court that she wanted to use the proceeds from the sale of the goat to treat her son.
Prosecutor Abiodun Fagboyinbo told the court that she committed on the 5th of January at Agunbelewo in Osogbo.
The defence counsel, Abimbola Ige, prayed the court to temper justice with mercy.
The magistrate sentenced Saidat to six months imprisonment, but was later given N15,000 option of fine.
