A middle-aged man, Ismaila Musa was Thursday sentenced to 19 months in prison by a Zuba Upper Area Court for beating up a police officer.

Musa was arraigned before the court on a four-count charge of screening an offender, obstructing a police officer from carrying out his work, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Haruna Danlami, told the court that on April 2, a police officer was sent to Zuba fruit market, Abuja, on inquiry. When the officer got to the market, he arrested two suspects, along with the exhibit of their offence, and charged them with theft.

He alleged that on their way back to the station, the convict attacked the policeman and set the other suspect free in the process and escaped with the exhibit.

According to Danlami, Musa deceived one Cpl. Yonana Moses to come and arrest a suspect that escaped from his custody, only to connive with some boys to beat up the officer.

The prosecutor said that the offences contravened the Penal Code.

Presiding judge, Malam Aminu Sa’ad sentenced Musa after he pleaded guilty to the charges against him, with an option of N75,000 fine.
