Man Sentenced To 6 Strokes Of Cane For Stealing A Bag Of Beans

A Karmo Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, on Monday ordered that an applicant, Kabiru Badamasi, be given six strokes of the cane for stealing a bag of beans worth N15, 000.

Badamasi of Gwagwa Karmo village, Abuja, was sentenced on a count charge of theft.

Justice Abubakar Sadiq, who gave the order after the convict pleaded guilty on a two-count charge, ordered that the convict should be given six strokes of the cane.

Sadiq said that the punishment would have been severe if he had not pleaded guilty to save the court the pains of a protracted prosecution.

The prosecuting counsel, Mr Dalhatu Zannah, had told the court that one Abdullahi Mohammed of Jiwa, Abuja, reported the matter at Karmo Police Station on Jan.23.

Zannah said that the convict criminally trespassed into the complainant’s shop at Karmo market and stole one bag of Beans valued at N15, 000.

He said the convict was arrested by the police at Agura Junction as he was about selling the beans. Zannah added that during police investigation and interrogation, the convict admitted committing the offence.

The prosecuting counsel said that the offences contravened the provisions of Section 288 of the Penal Code.

*It is only in Nigeria they flog people for crimes and i wonder why!!!


  1. Stella, I'm quite sure the accused would prefer his ordinary six strokes of cane to a jail term oh.

    But I think it's a sharia court cos no law court does this

    1. He was tried and sentenced under the penal code ..... which is used for offences not deemed criminal enough at district courts.

    2. And how many strokes them don flog all the politrictians that stole bags of dollars:
      The likes of
      Oshi Omo Ole
      El Tifai

      How many strokes them don flog the people wey share 1 billion naira to do burial?
      Na only poor people wey tif beans them dey flog?

  2. Fair enough than cutting off his hands

  3. It's not only in Nigeria. This is Sharia law

  4. #The easy road never led to a GREAT destination. The easy road is not bringing you anything but hard times*

  5. Exactly. Its better than cutting his hands.

  6. @ SDK, its not only in nigeria ooo, but in hausa land.
