Woman steals friends’ purses at birthday party in Abuja

A Karu upper area court sitting in Abuja, on Wednesday, sentenced a woman, Blessing Mallemm, to 10 months imprisonment for stealing her two friends’ purses at a birthday party.

The judge, Malam Hassan Ishaq, however, gave the convict an option of N25,000 fine and ordered her to pay N37,000 as compensation to the complainants and warned her to desist from committing crime.
