I Did It Because Of My Job- Says Dj That Was Sentenced For Stealing Ipad

ipadDon’t doubt the power of a man that is willing to pursue his dream. Can’t really understand what the pursuit of ones dream can make one do. I still don’t think it should make you steal just to pursue your dream.

25 years old Disk Jockey (dj) Emmanuel Nelson, Was sentenced to a court at Kado Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, To eight months imprisonment for stealing a N65,000 Ipad.

According to Vanguard: The presiding officer, Alhaji Mohammed Ado, gave Nelson an option of N8,000 fine, and warned him to desist from committing crimes. The convict, who resides at Kado Kuchi Village, Abuja, was convicted on the two-count charge of criminal trespass and stealing preferred against him. Nelson, who had pleaded guilty to the charges, urged the court to temper justice with mercy as his action was motivated by the desire to enhance his work. Prosecutor Judith Obatomi had told the court that Benedith Akuh, also of Kado Kuchi Village, had reported the matter at the Mabushi Police Station, Abuja, on June 5. Obatomi said the complainant reported that sometime in October 2015, Nelson, a neighbor, broke into his room and stole his ipad valued N65, 000. The prosecutor said the offences contravened Sections 348 and 288 of the Penal Code.

Nelson probably didn’t mean to steal the Ipad, guess he really needed it push his career.
