The court also sentenced Ibrahim Bello to 5 years in prison without option of fine, while Kaior Isaiah, was discharged and acquitted for lack of proof of the offence he was charged for.
The presiding magistrate Japhet Ibrahim Basani, of the Chief Magistrate Court 2 convicted and sentenced the boys after they were tried and found guilty for criminal conspiracy, extortion and theft.
The court held that the prosecution had proved  the offences against the convicts without any reasonable doubt, and sentenced them accordingly.
Meanwhile the prosecution said Aminu, Yusuf and Gaddafi Musa (now at large) of Wuro Kuturu in Yola North Local Government Area, criminally conspired and armed themselves with cutllases and knives and broke into a house at the same address.
The shila boys stormed the house around 2:00am, on the 10th September, 2021, and threatened to kill one Umar Faruk Ibrahim, and his brother where they carted away 2 of their phones valued N100, 000 and N20, 000 respectively.
Fortunately, during the operation of the boys in the house, one of their victims, Umar Faruk Ibrahim, was able to identify Aminu, one of the convicts.
Faruk reported the matter to the vigilante the following morning, and also volunteered to lead the team to the residence of Aminu, one of the convicts as a result of which he was arrested.
Immediately after his arrest, Aminu led the vigilante to the arrest of Yusuf, one of the accomplice and Ayuba, who bought one of the stolen phones.
It was gathered that Aminu and Yusuf sold the phone valued at N100, 000, to Ayuba Abdullahi, one of the convicts at the sum of N10,000, only.
While investigation was ongoing, Ayuba told the team that he gave the stolen phone he brought to Kaior, so as to keep it for him, and also led the team to Kaior’s business center where he was apprehended.
