Court Jails Tricycle Rider For Dangerous Riding

A Karmo Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, on Friday sentenced a 26-year-old Tricycle Rider, Nnadozie Friday, to one month imprisonment for Dangerous Riding.

The judge, Alhaji Abubakar Sadiq, however, gave the convict an option to pay N10,000 fine.

“Ride carefully, there are other people using the public road,” he said.

Sadiq advised the convict to desist from committing crimes, adding that the sentence would serve as deterrent to others.

Friday, who resides at Dape village, Abuja, was convicted on a four-count charge bordering on dangerous Riding, causing obstruction on public high way, driving without national driver’s license and expired certificate of road worthiness.

The convict, who pleaded guilty to the offense, urged the court to temper justice with mercy that he did not realize he was riding dangerously.

The Prosecutor, Florence Avhioboh, had told the court that he did not allow flow of traffic and he was arrested by the police on Oct. 13, and taken to Karmo Police Station.

She said during police investigation, they discovered that all his papers had expired.

The prosecutor said the offenses contravened the provisions of Sections 18, 39, 7 and 19 of the Road Traffic Act. Agency Reports
