Crime_03A Senior Magistrates’ court in Wuse zone 2, Abuja, has sentenced a 30-year old applicant, Aminu Abdullahi, to two months in prison for knocking out a man’s two teeth.

Abdullahi, who resides in Federal Housing Authority (FHA), Lugbe, was arraigned for causing grievous hurt.

The Magistrate, Mrs. Simisola Adeniyi, sentenced the convict, after he pleaded guilty to the charge and begged the court for leniency.

“The court will give the convict an option to pay N15,000 as compensation to the complainant.’’

Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp. Jeremiah Elijah, told the court that Mr. Ibrahim Hassan of Angwan Dutse, Sauka Kahuta, Lugbe, Abuja, reported the case at the Lugbe police station.
