An Abuja magistrate court has sentenced a taxi driver, Emmanuel Imhoudu, who stripped naked after his vehicle was impounded by security operatives in the city, to six months in prison.

Imhoudu in a video posted online, was protesting the seizure of his car by the FCT COVID-19 Enforcement Team.

He is to serve two months in prison for each of the three-count charges against him.

Alternatively, he is to pay N10, 000 fine on each of the counts filed against him and also make a public apology on any television network.

Imhoudu had said hunger pushed him out of his home in spite of the lockdown order issued by President Muhammadu Buhari.

On why he stripped naked, he said he wanted everyone to know that “all was not well with him and his family.”
