A court in Nigeria has sentenced three Indian nationals to 15 years in prison for oil theft.

The convicts -- Ajay Bhatia, Sailesh Kumar Singh and Chadrashekar Sharma -- were among 12 oil theft suspects, including eight other Indians, one Ghanaian and a Nigerian arrested in 2012, the Nigerian Tribune reported Thursday.

The suspects were arraigned on a two-count charge before Justice Lambo Akanbi Jan 22, 2013, in Balyesa state.

Others were acquitted of the charges.
