Earlier, the prosecutor, Karimu Bashiru, told the court that the case was reported on Sept. 13 at Anglo- Jos Police Station by one Gyang Choji of Zaramangada.
The prosecutor said that the convict entered the block industry of the complaint and attempted to steal the moulding machine before he was caught.
‘’While the accused was arraigned for attempting to steal the machine, he managed to jump over the court fence and escaped, but the court mobilised a group of boys who went after him.
‘’He jumped into another compound and the people there raised alarm and he was rearrested and brought back to the court,’’ the prosecutor said.
