Two get 10 days for causing disturbance

A Minna Magistrates’ Court in Niger State, at the weekend, sentenced two men to 10 days’ imprisonment each for public disturbance.

The police arraigned the accused, Bala Haruna and Mohammed Usman, for incitement and causing public disturbance, contrary to Section 114 of the Penal Code.

The police prosecutor, Ahmed Ali, told the court a vigilance group arrested the men and brought them to the station, on August 12.

He said they were accused of terrorising residents of Paida with long sharp knives.

The accused pleaded guilty and begged for leniency.

The Magistrate, Sa’adatu Gambo, ordered them to pay N5,000 each or serve 10 days each in prison.
