Actor sentenced to 3 months imprisonment for sodomy

18 September 2012, 09:16

Abuja - A 26-year old actor, Bestwood Chukwuemeka, was on Monday sentenced to three months imprisonment by a Karu Senior Magistrates’ Court, Abuja, for having sexual intercourse with another man through the anus.

The convict, who resides at Gidan Mangoro, had pleaded guilty to the charge.

``I am guilty of the charge against me. I  was under the influence of alcohol and I want the court to temper justice with mercy’’, he said.

The police prosecutor, Mohammed Umar, had told the court that the convict committed the offence in August when the complainant was sleeping in his bed.

The prosecutor said since he had pleaded guilty to the crime he initially denied, the court should trial him summarily.

The Senior Magistrate, Mrs Nafisatu Buba, sentenced him to three months imprisonment without an option of fine.

``’This would serve as warning to other youths who hide under the influence of alcohol to commit crimes,’’ she said.
