An unusual scenario recently occurred in Kaduna as a 70-year-old man who has allegedly been stealing for over 15 years was arraigned before a court.
In a report made available to NAN, the Upper Customary Court, Sabongari, Zaria in Kaduna state, on Tuesday sentenced Isa Hussaini,70, to five lashes of the cane for stealing a she-goat.
The accused, a resident of Funtua Local Government Area in Katsina State, was convicted of a charge of theft, after he pleaded guilty.
Just after Hussaini pleaded guilty to the charge, Judge Atiku Sarki-Yohanam said the Court was merciful with the accused because he did not waste in admitting his guilt.
On his verdict, Judge Sarki-Yohanam ordered that Hussaini be given five lashes, warning him not to be involved in any criminal act again.
Meanwhile, 26-year-old Hafsat, who spent almost a year in Boko Haram before her rescue has revealed she was flogged daily for 11 months.
