Teenage Boy jailed for selling ‘FUFU’ Nokia phone in Lagos

For selling a cassava-stuffed Nokia phone, a 19-year-old street trader, Emeka Chukwumuata has been sentenced to two months in prison by the Special Offences Court, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos.

“I am usually lenient to young people but you have to go in for inflicting pain on people,’’ Magistrate Kushanu said.

Mrs. Kushanu further said it is unfortunate that it is the young people who are being brought to the court, the manufacturer should be raided and brought to court.’’

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the accused was sentenced after he had pleaded guilty to the charge.
Chukwumuata, who resides in Ikeja area of Lagos, faced a charge of street trading.

The prosecutor, Mr Babatunde Sunmonu, said that the accused committed the offence at about 11:00 a.m. on Medical Road, Ikeja.

Sunmonu said that the offence committed contravened Section 10(1)(a) of the Street Trading and Illegal Market Prohibition Law 2003.
