An Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court on Friday sentenced a 35-year-old fashion designer, Saka Alao, to three years in prison for pushing a man into a moving vehicle.
Chief Magistrate A.A. Fashola, sentenced Alao, after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy, stealing, assault and attempted murder.
Fashola, however, gave the convict an option to pay a fine of N100,000.
The Prosecution Counsel, Sgt. Michael Unah, told the court that Alao pushed one Mr Aminu Abubakar, who was repairing his truck into a moving vehicle on the expressway.
Unah said Abubakar fractured his left leg.
He also said that the defendant stole the complainant’s cellphone valued at N11, 000.
Unah said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 175, 228, 287 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015. (NAN)
