A Zuba Grade 1 Area Court in the FCT, yesterday, sentenced eight women to six months imprisonment each for prostitution. Those sentenced were (names removed by me), of no fixed address in Zuba.
The judge, Mallam Alhassan Kusherki, sentenced the accused persons after they pleaded guilty to the one-count charge of soliciting men for the purpose of prostitution. Kusherki, however, gave the convicts an option of N20,000 fine each.
Prosecutor, Momoh Ibrahim, had told the court that the offence contravened Section 405 (Paragraph 1(b)) of the Penal Code.
