A 21-year-old unemployed man has been handed a six-month prison sentence for stealing a Techno mobile phone in the Nkwanta South District Court of the Oti Region.
Njandi faced charges of theft at the Nkwanta Magistrate Court, where he pleaded guilty to the offense. The presiding judge, Joseph Annang Okorokpa, sentenced the young man based on his own plea.
During the pronouncement of the judgment, Judge Okorokpa said this sentencing served as a strong deterrent to potential thieves in the area.
This, he added is aimed at protecting the community from such criminal activities in the future.
