An  FCT Area Court Judge, Abubakar Sadiq, on Tuesday, sentenced a bag snatcher Chukwuemeka Ndukwu,37, to six months in prison.

The court convicted Ndukwu, of no fixed address after he pleaded guilty to a two-count charge of theft and extortion.

Sadiq, however, gave him an option to pay N20, 000 fine.
