In a Grade I Area Court in Dei-Dei, Abuja, on Thursday, December 14, a 31-year-old man, Lawal Babangida, was sentenced to six months imprisonment for impersonating a military officer.

Babangida, residing in Tungamaji village, Abuja, faced charges of impersonation, criminal intimidation, and extortion.

Despite pleading guilty and requesting leniency, he received an option of a N6,000 fine from Area Court judge Saminu Suleiman.

The judge sternly warned Babangida to refrain from criminal activities after completing his sentence. The case, reported by Usman Zaiyanu of Tomato Junction Zuba Abuja, involved the convict falsely presenting himself as a military officer, threatening the complainant, and stealing his phone and N10,000 cash on November 11 at Zuba Tomato Junction around 9:30 pm.

The prosecutor, Chinedu Ogada, highlighted that the convict’s actions violated Sections 132, 321, and 292 of the Penal Code.
