Man, 21 Jails Five Years for Car Theft

Magistrate Muhibah Olatunji of an Ife Magistrate court in Osun State on Thursday sentenced one Oga Joseph, 21 to five years impronsment without an option of fine for using “Magis Key” to unlock cars.

The Magistrate, found Joseh guilty and convicted him for entering, stealing and intent to commit felony.

The convict, while pleading with the court to tamper justice with mercy, confessed to having a magic key to unlock cars to steal properties. Magistrate Olatunji said that the sentence would reform the convict and afford him the opportunity to learn one or two vocations that would benefit him at the correctional centre and serve as deterrent to others. She, therefore, sentenced Joseph to five years imprisonment, without any option of fine. According to her, the offences contravene Sections 383, 390(9), 412 and 508 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun, 2002.
