The judge, Abubakar Sadiq, convicted Benson as she admitted committing the offence.

The judge, however gave the convict N5,000 option of fine, and warned her to be of good behaviour and desist from fighting.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Dalhatu Zannah, had told the court that the matter was reported by one Jonah Ben of Jabi Dakibiyu, Abuja, at the Utako Police Station, on May 4.

Zannah said that on the same date at about 4 a.m. the convict boarded Ben’s taxi from Park Palace Hotel to Utako village at the agreed price of N300.

He said that the convict’s boyfriend paid Ben N500, and asked him to keep the balance.

The prosecutor alleged that when they got to Utako ,the lady insisted on collecting the balance.

Zanna informed the court that when Ben refused to give her the N200, she started fighting him, and in the process she broke the windscreen worth N15, 000.

He said that during police investigation the convict admitted committed the offence.

The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Section 327 of the Penal Code.
