An Upper Area Court in Jos has sentenced a 20-year old student, Adamu Yakubu, to two years imprisonment for breaking the windscreen of a car belonging to an actress, Jemila Nagudu.

Adamu, of Government College, Jos, was convicted for smashing the windscreen of the car belonging to a Hausa film actress without any provocation contrary to section 361 of the Penal Code.

The court, however, gave the convict an option of N3,000 fine

The judge, Malam Mustapha Hassan, in his ruling, said that that the prosecution had convinced the court beyond all reasonable doubt that the convict committed the offence.

Hassan said that the evidence tendered before the court and the confessional statement of the accused had assisted the court in reaching its decision to convict him.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Gokwat Ibrahim, had told the court that the accused committed the offence on December 17, at Ali Kazaure Area of Jos.

“My lord, the accused, on the fateful day, at about 12 noon, ordered the actress to leave the area or face the consequences.

“When the actress, who was on a visit to her in-laws refused to leave the area, the accused used “a big stone” to smash the windscreen of her CRV jeep,” he further told the court.

The prosecutor said that the unidentified future partner of the actress reported the matter to Laranto police station, which resulted in the arrest of the suspect.

When the case came up for hearing, the accused pleaded guilty and begged the court for leniency.

The judge said that the convict would be sentenced so as to serve as a deterrent to others.
