I find it difficult to explain what is going on in this country. Top civil servants and politicians will steal billions of pension funds, leading to the death of many senior citizens, yet they will be granted bail and that will be the end of the matter.



But whenever a poor man commits a crime the law always "take it course"!

A 27 year old peasant farmer, Gambo Simeon was on Monday sentenced to life imprisonment by a Maiduguri high court for forcefully collecting a Nokia handset, valued at N4,500 and the sum of N17, 000 from one Moses Jande.

The court was told that Gambo, with one Musa Aminu who is at large, in April 2009, armed with a cutlass and stick, attacked Moses Jande on his way from work at Wamdeo town in Borno State.

The prosecution counsel also told the court that the handset, which was tendered as exhibit, was recovered from Simeon after his arrest by the police. Simeon was charged for robbery under section 298(b) of the penal code law of Borno state.



The presiding judge, Justice Pindar Haruna Ngadda, who convicted the accused, said "I agree with the prosecution that the most important thing in this case is the prove of theft of things stolen and not really the value of the property and the prosecution has proved this by the exhibit."

Justice Ngadda thus sentenced Gambo to life imprisonment in accordance with section 298(b) of the penal code laws of Borno State.

They were armed, and the section 298(b) panel code of Borno State law says such situation demand life imprisonment, so no big deal, if they were not armed is a different thing, they would have killed the innocent man for just phone and 17,000 naira.

I think others will learn from  this

this is really painful for the victim, it could have been better for him that he died in the action than to see himself dying slowly in the prison just because of #4,500 mobile and #17,000   chai!  is a very big pity!
