Eri, however, gave them an option to pay a fine of N100, and warned them to `desist from such act, for the sentence may not be lighter next time.’ Earlier, the prosecutor, Cpl. Yusuf Sani, informed the court that on Feb. 13 at 7a.m., one David Njoku of the Father’s Church, Jahi, Abuja, reported the matter at the Mabushi Police Station.
