“If you sentence him to prison now, nobody will be assist me, i may die”



There was a mild drama in a Badagry Chief Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, as a nominal complainant, Mr James Bassey, broke down in tears to beg for leniency for a dry cleaner, Pius Savoir, sentenced to one month for stealing a pressing iron and N20,000.

Chief Magistrate Patrick Adekomaiya sentenced Savior following his guilty plea and presentation of the facts of the case.

In sentencing the convict, the chief magistrate held that as a first offender, the court would be lenient.

Adekomaiya thereby sentenced Savior to one-month imprisonment, to spend seven days in prison and the remaining three weeks in Morogbo Police Station, where he would report daily for community service.

Immediately after the sentence, Bassey burst into tears and pleaded that the convict should be pardoned.

“My Lord, I don’t have a wife or children; this convict always takes care of me.

“He used to help me to do all my domestic work and massage me, but the habit of stealing my things is too much; that is why I reported him when he stole my money and pressed iron.

“If you sentence him to prison now, nobody will be assisting me, which could lead to my death,” he said.
