A Karmo Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, on Tuesday sentenced 24-year-old
hair stylist, Joy Benson, to one month imprisonment for damaging the
windscreen of a taxi worth N15,000.

The judge, Abubakar Sadiq, convicted Benson as she admitted committing
the offence.

The judge, however gave the convict N5,000 option of fine, and warned
her to be of good behaviour and desist from fighting.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Dalhatu Zannah, had told the court that the
matter was reported by one Jonah Ben of Jabi Dakibiyu, Abuja, at the
Utako Police Station, on May 4.

Zannah said that on the same date at about 4 a.m. the convict boarded
Ben's taxi from Park Palace Hotel to Utako village at the agreed price
of N300.

He said that the convict's boyfriend paid Ben N500, and asked him to
keep the balance. The prosecutor alleged that when they got to Utako
,the lady insisted on collecting the balance.

Zanna informed the court that when Ben refused to give her the N200,
she started fighting him, and in the process she broke the windscreen
worth N15, 000. He said that during police investigation the convict
admitted committed the offence.

The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Section 327 of the Penal Code.
