An Upper Area Court sitting in Kasuwan Nama, Jos, on Friday, sentenced an 18-year-old man, Adamu Saidu, to five years in prison for stabbing a man who was celebrating with his football team after winning a match.

The Judge, Mr Lawal Suleiman, sentenced Saidu after he pleaded guilty to causing grievous hurt and begged the court for leniency.

Suleiman, however, gave the convict an option to pay a fine of N100,000. He also ordered the convict to pay N5,000 to the complainant, Gali Khali.


Suleiman said that the judgment would serve as a deterrent to those who would want to indulge in such grievous criminal act of causing hurt.

Earlier, the Police Prosecutor, Ibrahim Gokwat told the court that the case was reported on October 11, at the Laranto Police Station by Khali.
