Homeless Conductor Sent To Kirikiri Prison For Beating Woman
One Faruk Yusuf, a 20-year-old “homeless” bus conductor has been sentenced to 90 days in Kirikiri prison with hard labour, by an Ikeja Magistrate Court for assaulting a woman.
The magistrate, Mrs M.O Tanimola, sentenced Yusuf, after he pleaded guilty to assault and begged for mercy.
Tanimola, in her verdict, however, gave the accused an option to pay N10,000 fine.
“You are hereby sentenced to three months imprisonment with hard labour or an option of N10,000 fine.
“The sentence will serve as a deterrent to others who might want to engage in similar acts,” she ruled.
Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp Aondohemba Koti, told the court that the accused committed the offence on Jan. 6, at Ojuwoye Market, Mushin. Lagos.
He said that the accused beat up Miss Oyindamola Omoniyi, and then punched her mouth, after an argument.
Koti told the court that the offence contravened Section 170 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
