Man asked to sweep court for stealing purse

A Kaduna Chief Magistrates Court has ordered a man found guilty of stealing a woman’s purse to sweep the court grounds for three weeks in Ghana.

“The accused had broken into the lady’s store pretending to buy a loaf of bread,” Inspector Chidi Leo, the police prosecutor, told the court.

The inspector added that the woman’s purse was taken by the man from her shop.

During investigations, the stolen purse was identified and retrieved with its content.

After entering a guilty plea to stealing, the suspect charged on his own plea and given the appropriate penalty.

According to Magistrate Ibrahim Emmanuel, the convict’s guilty plea spared the court time.
