A Karmo Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, on Tuesday discharged one Shehu Adamu, docked for stealing his own car from the police station.

Adamu, who resides at Utako Village, Abuja, and arraigned on a charge of theft, pleaded guilty after admitting to committing the offence.

He begged the court for leniency.

“I plead with this court to reduce my punishment for I know I am guilty of all the allegations,’’ he had said.

The Judge, Alhaji Inuwa Maiwada, after listening to Adamu, discharged him and warned him not to commit crime again.

He ordered him to sign a bond to be of good behaviour.

Maiwada also ordered the police to release the car to the defendant.

The Prosecuting Counsel, Mrs Ijeoma Ukagha, had told the court that one Ugochukwu Ogbonna, a Mobile Police Officer attached Utako Police Station, reported the matter at the station.

“They were at a check point when the officer stopped the man to search his car and discovered that the man had no driver’s licence, and the car was later taken to the police station.

“The defendant later went to the station and fraudulently took the car without the consent of the police officer that arrested him,” Ukagha said.
