Wilfred Inacho, 26, was sentenced to six strokes of the cane by a Gudu Upper Area Court sitting in Abuja after he was dragged to the court for fondling a woman’s buttocks in public.
Inacho who is a welder, was charged on a one count-charge of mischief for grabbing a woman’s buttocks without her consent, pleaded guilty to the charge, saying it was not intentional as he only wanted the lady to like him.
The presiding judge, Umar Kagarko, while passing the sentence on the convict, admonishing him to desist from such indecency, and advised him to look for a decent approach towards women.
“You don’t go about touching a woman’s buttock simply because you want her to like you. Find a decent approach,” Kagarko said.
