The Presiding Judge, Mr Abdulaziz Ibrahim, however, gave the teenager an option of N20, 000 fine.
The 19-year-old, David, had pleaded guilty to trespass and theft, contrary to Sections 333 and 271 of the Kaduna State Penal Code.
The prosecutor, Insp Johnson Ibudu, had told the court that one Mr Sunday Hillary reported the case to the police on April 4.
