An upper Area Court, sitting in Kasuwan Nama, Jos, Plateau State on Thursday sentenced a 30-year-old driver, Dachung Adamu, to five months’ imprisonment for impersonation.
The Judge, Lawal Suleiman, who sentenced Adamu after he pleaded guilty to the offence, did not give him any option of fine.
He said the judgement would serve as a deterrent to those who would want to indulge in such criminal acts.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp. Monday Dabit, told the court that the case was reported at the ‘A’ Division police station on February 13 by a police patrol team led by Asp. Philip Bawa.
The prosecutor said the convict was caught with military and police camouflage posing as personnel.
Dabit said the offence was contrary to section 141 of the Plateau State penal code.
