18 Christians sentenced to jail.


A Karmo Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, on Friday sentenced a cobbler, Lawal Haruna to one month imprisonment for inflicting injury on his friend.

The judge, Mr Abubakar Sadiq, said the punishment would serve as deterrent to others. Sadiq also ordered the convict to pay N10, 000 as restitution to the complainant

Haruna who resides at Aprofim, Life Camp, Abuja, was sentenced on a two-count charge of causing grievous hurt.

He begged the court for leniency and was given N10,000 option of fine.

The prosecutor, Mrs Florence Auhioboh, told the court that the matter was lodged at Life Camp Police Station, Abuja, by one Jibrin Isah of Aprofim, Life Camp on March 22.

Auhioboh said that the convict and the complainant’s cousin, Isah Yusuf had an argument and the convict violently attacked Yusuf.

The prosecutor said the convict used a plank and inflicted injury on Yusuf’s forehead.

She said that Yusuf raised an alarm which attracted other neighbours and the convict took to his heels, but was caught.

Auhioboh told the court that the complainant spent N 15, 000 on Yusuf treatment at Gwarinpa and Maitama General Hospitals.

The prosecutor added that the offence contravened the provisions of Section 253 of the Penal Code.
