An area court sitting in Kabusa, Abuja, on Thursday, sentenced a 31-year-old man, Kefas Usman, to 12 months in prison for intimidating his former girlfriend for quitting their relationship.

The Judge, Malam Abubakar Sadiq, summarily sentenced Usman after he pleaded guilty to the charge and begged the court for leniency.

The judge, however, gave him an option of N20,000 fine.

Earlier, the prosecutor, S. O. Osho, told the court that the accused threatened to harm his former girlfriend, Eunice Samuel, after she decided to quit their relationship.
