A 26-year-old bus conductor, Rasaq Sikiru, has been sentenced to 20 strokes of the cane and two years imprisonment by an Ilorin Magistrate’s Court, Kwara State for belonging to a gang of thieves.

Sikiru was arraigned on a two-count charge of belonging to a gang of thieves and in possession of items suspected to have been stolen.

The convict was arrested on 26 April by a vigilante team having suspected that he belongs to a gang of thieves as he could not even give account of himself and the two handsets found in his possession.

Prior to his arrest, a resident of Asa Dam area, Ilorin, Oniye Shuaibu, had alleged that on 25 April some suspected hoodlums invaded his residence and attempted to steal his Toyota Camry car.

Shuaibu said the gang, however, failed in the mission as a result of the timely intervention of the vigilante team and youths in the area.

Police First Information Report, FIR, on the matter stated that the convict confessed that he is a member of a gang of thieves, and also revealed the names of other gang members, now at large, to be Yinusa Omo-Eko, Baba Lukman and Arobale.

Magistrate S.O. Sambo sentenced the convict who pleaded guilty, to two years imprisonment without an option of fine.
