According to him, the punishment would have been more severe if the carpenter had wasted the court’s time and allowed a protracted trial.
He admonished the convict to desist from committing crime in future and become a better citizen.
Earlier, the Prosecutor, Mrs. Florence Avhioboh, had told the court that a police patrol unit led by one Insp. Abbah Gabriel, arrested Eze at about 12.25am on September 1.
Avhioboh said that the carpenter was arrested at a Zenith Bank ATM Gallery at Jabi, Abuja, in possession of a toy gun and knife.
She said that when interrogated, the convict could not give a satisfactory explanation of what he was doing at the spot at that time of the night with the items on him.
The prosecutor said that Eze escaped from police custody but was later rearrested.
