The judge ordered that the convict be remanded in the Keffi Custodial Centre.

Counsel to the prosecution, Mr Olarewaju Osho, told the court that the matter was reported by one Pastor Uche Eke of Gidan Daya, Orozo, Abuja.

Osho said the convict criminally trespassed into the complaint’s church and carted away with 100 plastic chairs and three bottled water.

He said the convict was nabbed with the help of security men on duty and three plastic chairs were recovered from him and a pack of bottled water.

Johnson who pleaded guilty, however, asked for leniency.
