Abuja court orders flogging of student for stealing sandals

A Kado Grade 1 Area Court in  Abuja on Wednesday
sentenced a student, Usman Yakubu, to six strokes
of cane for stealing a pair of sandals at a shop.
Yakubu, who lives at Kado Estate, Abuja, was
arraigned on a charge of theft. The judge, Alhaji
Abubakar Sadiq, who handed down the verdict, said
Yakubu was convicted following his guilty plea.

Sadiq warned Yakubu to shun crime after receiving
his punishment, adding that if he was brought before
the court again,  a stiffer punishment would be
imposed on him. Earlier, the Prosecutor,
Cpl. Friday Idi, told the court that the offence was
reported at the Gwarimpa Police Station on March 9
by Usman Abdullahi of  Tipper Garage, Gwarimpa
Estate, Abuja.

He said the accused entered the plaintiff’s shop in
Gwarimpa and stole the sandals when he went for
evening prayers in the mosque. Idi put the value of
the sandals at N4, 000. He noted that the offence
contravened Section 287 of the Penal Code.
