A Senior Magistrates’ court, in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja, has sentenced two women, Franca James and Comfort John to two weeks in prison for fighting over a man.
James, 33, of Xtracare, Mpape, Abuja and John, 35, who resides in Karimo, Abuja, were charged with disturbing public peace.
The Magistrate, Mr. Celestine Odo, sentenced the women after they pleaded guilty to fighting over a man.
He, however, gave them an option to pay N2, 000 each as fine and advised them to desist from fighting.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Sgt. Abdullahi Adamu, had told the court that an Anti-Robbery Patrol team attached to the Divisional Police Station, Wuse Zone 3, in Abuja, arrested the two women on April 29, at about 11 p.m.
The prosecutor said that the offence contravened the provisions of Section 154 of the Penal code. (NAN)
