An Upper Area court in Zuba, FCT, on Wednesday sentenced two women – Binta Mamman, 35, and Safiya Aliyu, 19, both of Deidei, Abuja, to five months imprisonment for slapping a police man.

The women had also been charged with using abusive language and public nuisance.

Malam Aminu Sa™ad, the presiding judge, handed down the sentence after the women pleaded guilty to the three-count charge of criminal force and assault, use of abusive language and public nuisance.

Sa™ad ruled that on the first count of criminal force and assault, the convicts shall serve a jail term of one month each without an option of fine.

He, however, gave them an option of N20,000 fine each for the other two counts charge including the use of abusive language and public nuisance, and declared the terms would run consecutively.

Prosecutor, Cpl. Momoh Ibrahim, had told the court that on 14 June 2014, the convicts were arrested for using insulting language on Cpl. Abraham Omageni of Deidei police station.

Ibrahim said the convicts also slapped Omageni.

The prosecutor told the court that their offences contravened the provisions of the Penal Code.
