An Upper Area Court sitting in Kasuwan Nama in Jos on Thursday, sentenced a 22-year-old-trader, Yusuf Musa, to one-year imprisonment for stealing chicken.
The judge, Yahaya Mohammed, sentenced Mr Musa after he pleaded guilty to stealing the chicken.
Mr Mohammed, however, gave the convict an option of N10,000 fine.
He said the judgment would serve as a deterrent to those who would want to indulge in such an act of stealing.
