Man sentenced for trespassing into lady’s bedroom

Jos – The Upper Area Court in Kasuwar-Nama, Jos, yesterday,  sentenced a motor mechanic, Ismaila Ibrahim, to four months’ imprisonment for forcing his way into a lady’s bedroom.

The court, however, gave the convict an option of fine of N2,000.

The trial judge, Malam Mustapha Hassan, said the prosecution had convinced the court beyond reasonable doubt that the convict committed the offence.

Hassan further said that evidences provided by the prosecution had also assisted the court in convicting the accused for trespassing into a married woman’s bedroom.

“The confession of the accused of committing the offence assisted the court to convict him.  ‘The court had relied heavily on the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC) that stipulates quick judgment to any suspect that pleads guilty to his or her offence,“ he added.
