Court Sentences Butcher To One-Year Imprisonment For Stabbing Colleague

An Area Court sitting in Jos on Monday has sentenced a 24-year-old butcher, Mathew Danjuma, to one-year imprisonment for stabbing his colleague.

The judge, Mr Shawomi Bokkos, who jailed Danjuma after he confessed to the crime, however, gave him the option of a N50,000 fine.

He also ordered him to pay N35,000 as compensation to the complainant.

Bokkos said the judgement would serve as a deterrent to those who would want to indulge in such acts.
