ABUJA – A Grade 1 Area Court in Karmo, Abuja, on Wednesday sentenced a 30-year old tricycle operator, Sani Idris of Utako village, Abuja, to two months in for causing obstruction.

The judge, Mr Ahmed Ado, sentenced Idris after he pleaded guilty to the charge.

Ado, however, gave the convict an option of N1,000 fine.

The judge also warned the convict to desist such act and be of good behaviour.

Earlier, the police prosecutor, Cpl. Simon Emmanuel, told the court that a police team on patrol arrested and took the convict to Life Police Station on May 30.

Emmanuel said the convict parked his tricycle wrongly around Jabi-Airport road junction, thereby obstructing other road users’ right of way.

He said during police investigation, the convict could not give satisfactory account of himself.

The prosecutor said the offence contravened the Road Act. (NAN)
