A 51-year old man, Ikidi Innocent, has been jailed by an Oredo Magistrate Court for using expired Union Bank ATM card to buy drinks and fried meat.

Ikidi was said to have committed the offence on June 27, 2019.

He was said to have tricked one Blessing John and Dorothy Amaka to buy meat and beer for his consumption.

Ikidi was arraigned on three count charges of cheating and obtaining by false pretence.

He pleaded guilty to the charges.

Police Prosecutor, ASP Patrick Agbonifo, informed the court that the convict bought fried meat worth N1500, stout beer worth N9000, origin bitters worth N300, and other alcoholic drinks worth N3,430.

ASP Agbonifo said the offences were punishable under sections 516, 421 and 419 of the Criminal Code cap 48 Vol ii laws of the defunct Bendel State of Nigeria now applicable in Edo State.

Presiding Magistrate, Ivie Akhere, sentenced the accused to three months imprisonment without an option of fine.
