Chukwumuata, was on Friday
sentenced to two months imprisonment
by the Special Offences Court, Alausa,
Ikeja, for selling a Fufu-Stuffed
(cassava-stuffed) Nokia phone.
"I am usually lenient to young people
but you have to go in for inflicting
pain on people,'' the Magistrate, Mrs
O. Kushanu said.
"It is unfortunate that it is the young
people who are being brought to the
court, the manufacturer should be
raided and brought to court,'' she said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)

after he had pleaded guilty to the
charge.
Chukwumuata, who resides in Ikeja
area of Lagos, faced a charge of street
