The trial Magistrate Mrs Gbasha sentenced him to one-month community service, which, if defaulted, would lead to his being sentenced to jail for two months.

Ms Gbasha further stated that the community service would be carried out at the court premises for 30 working days from 9 am to 2 pm each day under strict supervision.
She warned youths in the state to desist from the habit of alcoholism and mischief and engage themselves in worthwhile ventures to secure their future.

The prosecuting police officer, Inspector Kuegh Abugh, explained to the court.

He narrated that the Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr Bemgba Iortyom, in the company of the Chairman, Task Force on Illegal Motor Parks, Bobby Uper, had arrested the convict and took him to the State Criminal Investigation Department(Cid) in Makurdi.

He was arrested while destroying the PDP campaign billboard at Wurukum Roundabout.
The prosecutor stated that when the convict saw some youths coming to the crime scene, he started running but was arrested.

When the case came up, the convict pleaded guilty to the charge and explained that he committed the offence under the influence of alcohol after being instructed by an official of the All Progressives Congress, APC, which he didn’t mention the name.

He begged the court to forgive him, saying his wife left him with a two-year-old baby girl to cater for.
