A 33-year-old man, Sylvester Okuku, of Badawa Quarters in Kano State, will cool his furious fists in prison for two months after he was jailed by a Customary Court for allegedly beating and injuring a woman, Comfort King.

The prosecutor in the case, Corporal Yakubu Galadima, while giving evidence, said that King reported the assault at the Badawa Police Division and Okuku was duly arrested and charged to court.

Galadima told the court that Okuku used force on King and beat her up, as a result of which she sustained an injury on her face while he also broke her rubber bucket.

The accused pleaded guilty to the charge and the presiding magistrate, Fatima Muhammad sentenced him to two months imprisonment or pay a fine of N7, 000 for the offence he committed.

He was also ordered to pay the sum of N700 to the complainant as a compensation for the bucket he destroyed or faced another three days in jail.
