Three men, Mohammed Aliyu, Abdullahi Kabiru and Mohammed Abdullahi, stole the sum of 3,500.
For this they have been sentenced to five months imprisonment by a Karmo Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja.
One would like to pity them, but not after the prosecutor, Mrs Ukagha Ijeoma, told the court how they carried out the act.
Ijeoma said that on July 14, at about 9.p.m. while one Mr Chidi Amadi was on his way from Jabi to Lento, the accused, who were riding a tricycle stopped and attacked him with a knife.
She said that the accused stabbed the complainant’s chest with the knife and caused him serious injury.
