A FCT court on Monday ordered that a 34-year-old applicant, Anthony Nnakanagu, to be given six strokes of cane for stealing four pieces of toilet tissue valued N200, NAN reports.

Nnkanagu, a resident of Airport Road, Abuja, was convicted on a two-count charge of criminal trespass and theft.

The judge, Alhaji Umar Kagarko, also ordered Nnakanagu to be of good behaviour and desist from committing crime.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Oyeyemi Adeniyi, told the court that one Fidelis Agba attached to Bolton White hotel, Area 11, Garki, Abuja, reported the matter at the Garki Police Station on Jan. 7.

He said that the convict criminally trespassed into the said hotel, pretending to be a customer and entered one of the hotel toilets to ease himself.

Adeniyi said while the convict was in the toilet, he dishonestly stole four pieces of toilet paper valued at N200 only.

He further said that the said toilet tissue was found in the convict’s possession and the offences contravened Sections 348 and 287 of the Penal Code.

Nnakanagu, however, pleaded guilty and plead for leniency.

The canning is okay so that he will not grow to become 'like our big men and women'.

If they publicly cane our big men and women, he will not have stolen the toilet paper because he will have power, water, healthcare and a job. Then he will buy his own toilet paper.

Apparently, he is not a bigwig. If he were one, he would have just received a pat on the back, fined #10, then told to go an sin no more.

For you to make it big as a thief in this country, you must be a bigwig :D

Some people will still steal even if death penalty is being passed for stealing a pencil. Stealing is a temptation to every human being, it only takes self control not to steal.
