25-year-old to get 20 lashes for stealing she-goat

A Sharia Court in Minna, Niger State, Nigeria on Monday ordered a 25-year-old man, Abubakar Sani, to be given 20 strokes of the cane for stealing a she-goat.

The presiding judge, Ahmed Bima, also ordered the convict to pay a fine of N10,000.
Bima said in the event of default, the convict would serve six months in jail.

Sani was arraigned on a one-count charge of theft, contrary to Section 287 of the Penal Code.

The Prosecutor, Cletus Ibrahim, had told the court that a member of the vigilance group at Garatu village arrested the accused and brought him to the police station on July 25.

Ibrahim said the vigilance group member arrested the convict at Garatu Market while he was in the process of selling a brown she-goat valued at N5,000.

He said Sani made a confessional statement.
When the charge was read to him, he pleaded guilty and begged the court for leniency.
