Minors Flogged For Hawking In Abuja by bawomolo(m): 5:20pm On Oct 21, 2010
Nine hawkers who are minors were yesterday ordered to be flogged seven strokes of the cane while 21 others were sentenced to one month imprisonment by an Abuja mobile court for hawking in Abuja.

The minor hawkers are I.K Ochine, Salisu Ibrahim, Madu Mpam, Tunde Famakinde, Ibrahim Muhammed, Sahadu Adamu, Francis Isha, Suleiman Usman and Aminu Yakubu.

Those sentenced are Ubaka Okeke, Sanusi Mustapha, Awalu Yahaya, Hannatu Galadima, Abdul Usman, Abuchi Igwe, Nelson Madela, Umar Mahammudu, Chioma Ugwu, Isah Umar, Rabiu Muhammed Fatima Abubakar. Joy Joseph, Suleman Ibrahim, Adebayo Sade, Mustapha Ahmed, Murtala Sani Suleman Usman, Daudu Abdullahi, Nuhu Muhammed and Sahabiu Saidu


The prosecutor, Barrister Eze E. Eze, had earlier told the court that the accused persons were arrested by the task force of the Abuja Environmental Protection Board (AEPB) while hawking at road junctions and unauthorized places within the FCT, an offence punishable under Section 35 (1) of the AEPB Act No 10 of 1997.

The accused persons pleaded guilty when the charge was read to them and begged for leniency, promising not to do it again.

The prosecutor urged the court to try the accused persons summarily under Section 157 of the Criminal Procedure Code.


Magistrate Aminu Abdullahi sentenced each of the 21 hawkers to one month's imprisonment with an option of N3,000 fine and ordered that the minors be given seven strokes of cane.


The magistrate also ordered that the items seized from those sentenced should be released to them while those of the minors should not be released until they brought their parents.

But for real tho, do state officials have the right to lay hands on citizens?

This is complete and utter nonsense.

This children should be protected, not flogged! angry
Re: Minors Flogged For Hawking In Abuja by jumobi1(m): 7:50pm On Oct 21, 2010
Don't blame the parents, blame the government. I'm sure the parents don't willingly tell their kids to hawk.

This brings us back to the days of War Against Indiscipline.

I think the judgement was fair. Next time, those kids will vehemently refuse to go hawking when sent by their parents.

A Ghanaian guy asked me today what I did to celebrate our 50 years as a country. I not that we were in public he would have had to limp out of that building. Nigeria in all her Glory. Beat the crap of the kids why don't you and maybe that will in turn make there irresponsible and useless parents less useless.
Re: Minors Flogged For Hawking In Abuja by Desdo(m): 2:45am On Oct 22, 2010
Why should the children when the govt have failed to protect their right. They should ready think of way to eradicate poverty because I believe no sane child hawk for fun rather they do it 2 make ends meet.

Re: Minors Flogged For Hawking In Abuja by Nobody: 3:58am On Oct 22, 2010
Despite the unfair punishment, I was thinking maybe they got flogged because they were hawking as minors (I mean that maybe a new law has been passed and kids should not be hawking or something along the lines). But surprisingly it was because they were in unauthorized places. Incredible!
