An Upper Area Court, Kuje , FCT, on Wednesday sentenced three men, Micheal Adibe, Ogunlade Micheal and Warya Terso to two months imprisonment each for drunkenness and public nuisance.
The presiding officer, Mr. Adamu Wakili, convicted the men after they pleaded guilty to a one-count charge of public nuisance.
Wakili, however, gave each of the convicts an option to pay a fine of N3,000 or remain in prison for two months.
The prosecutor, Sergeant Niyom Ishaya, had earlier told the court that the matter was brought to Kuje Police Station on August 12 by a team of policemen on patrol led by ASP Alfa Musa.
Ishaya said the convicts, of no fixed address and who could not give satisfactory account of themselves, were arrested by the police at odd hours of the day.
“On August 11, at about 12:30 a.m., a team of policemen on patrol led by ASP Alfa Musa arrested Adibe, Micheal and Terso at liquor shop popularly known as “Ogogoro joint.”
