A Badagry Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos, has sentenced a 37-year-old man, Tunde Balogun to seven years imprisonment with hard labour for threatening a woman.
According to NAN, Balogun is charged with theft, damage to property and threat to life.





Delivering judgment, Chief Magistrate Patrick Adekomaiya, on Monday, held that he found Balogun guilty of stealing and threatening the life of Ms Ruth Gbemisola, the complainant.
Adekomaiya did not give the convict an option to pay a fine, saying it would serve as a deterrent to others.
Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, ASP Akpan Nko said that Balogun committed the offence on March 28, in Badagry, Lagos.
He said the convict broke into the house of Gbemisola, the complainant, and stole a generator and other valuables.
Nko said the convict damaged a window burglary and a padlock by cutting both with a saw.
He said Balogun also threatened the life of the complainant, adding that during the cause of the investigation, the police recovered some of the stolen items.
