An Abeokuta Magistrates’ Court on Friday sentenced three minors  to 24 months each in juvenile correction  home for stealing a tool box and spare parts.

Delivering judgment, Magistrate O.M Somefun, held that the prosecution has proven beyond reasonable doubt that the minors were guilty as charged.

Somefun did not give the minors an option of fine.

Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, ASP Olakunle Shonibare, told the court that the minors committed the offence on July 12,  at about 1 a.m in Abeokuta.

Shonibare said the boys conspired among themselves and stole mechanic tools, a car engine and two batter all worth N550,000 property of Mr Samson Gbadebo. 

He added that the boys also conducted themselves in a manner likely to cause breach of peace.

The prosecutor said  the offence contravenes the provisions of sections 390 and 517 of the Criminal Code  laws of Ogun, 2006.
