Alcoholic Drink Thief Gets 7 Lashes Of The Cane  

For stealing alcoholic drinks, Frank Ugochukwu, is to be whipped publicly, a court in Abuja has ruled.

27-year-old Ugochukwu went to a hotel and stole two big bottles of McDowell’s gin, one bottle of red label gin and a bottle of Andre wine from a shop.

The value of the stolen items was put at N9,500.
He had pleaded guilty to the charges of criminal trespass and theft at a Gudu Upper Area Court.

“You are guilty as charged”, judge Umar Kagarko told Ugochukwu, a former staff of Karibu Hotel located at 32 Lodoke Boulevard Way, Garki II.

Ugochukwu, who committed the offences on October 21, had begged for leniency, saying “I will not steal again”.
