A Karmo Grade I Area Court, Abuja, on Friday sentenced a 30-year-old Car wash operator, Marut Adeyinka, to 30 days’ imprisonment for slapping a woman.

Adeyinka, who resides at Suleja, Niger State, pleaded guilty to a two-count charge of causing hurt and assault and begged the court for leniency.

The judge, Inuwa Maiwada, however, gave Adeyinka an option to pay a fine of N5, 000.

Earlier, the prosecution counsel, Ijeoma Ukagah told the court that the matter was reported on March 15, at Utako Police Station, Abuja, by Ms Olaide Afoli, who lives in Karmo village Abuja.

Ukagah said the defendant slapped Afoli during an altercation.

She said that the complainant sustained injury on her face.
