Following a public altercation that caused a disturbance, two individuals known as Isah Abubakar and Abdulrazak Salihu have been handed three-month prison sentences each by an Area Court in Jos.

The judge presiding over the case, Shawomi Bokkos, delivered the verdict after the defendants pleaded guilty to the charges brought against them.

In addition to the jail time, the judge also presented them with an alternative option of paying a fine of N 10,000 each as a penalty for disrupting public peace.
