Share This

Crime_01An Upper Area court in Zuba, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has sentenced a palm oil seller, Sadiya Mohammed, to three months in prison for cheating her supplier of the sum of N177, 500.

Mohammed, who resides at Sabon Wuse, Niger, was arraigned on two counts of criminal breach of trust and cheating.

The judge, Malam Aminu Sa’ad, sentenced Mohammed after he pleaded guilty.

Sa’ad however, gave the convict an option of N15, 000 fine.

Earlier the prosecutor, Sgt. Haruna Danlami, told the court that on November 1, 2013, one Hajiya Khadija Yahaya, of Sabon Wuse, Niger reported the matter at the Zuba Police Station.

Danlami said Yahaya told the police that sometimes in September 2013, she supplied the convict with palm oil worth N177, 500.

He told the court that the convict collected the palm oil and refused to pay her.

The prosecutor said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 312 and 322 of the Penal code respectively. (NAN)
