Jamilu of no fixed address was arraigned on a three-count charge of criminal trespass, shop breaking and attempt to commit an offence of theft.

The Prosecutor, Patrick Ebong, had told the court that one Harrison Jatau of Pavilion Security Limited, Shoprite mall, Apo, Abuja, reported the matter at the Apo Police Station on April 25.

He said Jamilu criminally trespassed into the said mall through the backyard, climbed the fence to the roof top and broke into the ceiling.

He said the convict used a robe and dropped down into the cash room of the mall and attempted to break the safe.

Ebong said the security alarm blew and the convict narrowly escaped and was eventually caught and arrested by the police on Aug. 15.

Jamilu pleaded guilty and asked for leniency.

The Judge, Alhaji Umar Kagarko, gave Jamilu an option of fine in the sum of N30, 000 and warned him to desist from committing crimes.
