Court Jails Man For Insulting DPO by Tiola1: 7:08pm On Mar 26
A Wuse Zone 6 Magistrates’ Court, sitting in Abuja, on Monday sentenced a 39-year-old man, Abba Tukur, to 14 days imprisonment for insulting the Divisional Police Officer of Wuse Police Station.

Tukur of IBA Harnna street, Wuye Abuja was charged with a one-count charge of intentional insult.

Tukur pleaded guilty to the charge and begged the court for forgiveness.

In his ruling, Magistrate Ahmed Ndajiwo sentenced Tukur to 14 days imprisonment, after he pleaded guilty and begged the court for leniency.

The Judge, however, gave the convict an option to pay N5, 000 as fine and cautioned him to be a responsible citizen and desist from breaking the law.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, ASP Peter Ejike, FCT Command, told the court that on March 18, at about 9.30 pm, Whisky 6 Patrol team attached to Wuse Zone 3 Police Station, were out on patrol.

The Prosecutor explained that the patrol team which was headed by Insp. Ozioma Edank while on patrol arrested Tukur with a motorcycle around Wuse Zone 3, Abuja.

Ejike said the convict who was arrested and taken to the police station for his disobedience, walked into the DPO’s office and began to insult him intentionally.

He stressed that during police investigation, Tukur admitted to have committed the crime.

He said that the offence contravened the provisions of Section 399 of the Penal Code Law.
