A Grade 1 Area Court in Karu, Abuja, on Friday sentenced a man, Musa Victor, to three months imprisonment for stealing two rams.

Victor, of no fixed address, had pleaded guilty to a count charge of theft and begged for leniency.

The Judge, Mr Hassan Ishaq, however, gave the convict an option of N7,000 fine.

Ishaq also ordered the convict to assist the Police to locate the owner of the rams.
