A Zuba Grade I Area Court in Abuja on Friday sentenced a 25-year-old man, Abdulmajid Mohammed to six months imprisonment for impersonating an airforce officer

The police charged Mohammed with one count of impersonation.

The Area Court judge, Umar Angulu however, did not give Mohammed an option of fine.

He also warned the convict to be of good behaviour.

The convict had earlier pleaded guilty and begged the court for leniency.

The prosecutor, Mr Chinedu Ogad, told the court that on August 23, the complainant, Daniel Williams, a security guard in Zuba Fruit market, Abuja, reported the matter at the Zuba Police Station.

Ogada said that the convict went to Zuba Fruit market intimidating people and parading himself as an Air force officer.

The prosecutor added that during police investigation, the convict made a confessional statement.

He said that an Airforce identity card bearing the convict’s name and police tear gas canister were recovered from him,

Ogada said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 132 and 133 of the Penal Code.
