Reading the charge,  the Court Registrar, Mr. Okayinka Adeboye, said the offenders conducted themselves in a manner likely to cause breach of peace by deliberately ‘’failing to comply with the federal and state government’s lockdown order’’, which they all pleaded guilty and prayed the court to temper justice with mercy.

While delivering judgment, Magistrate Adebakin Soyoye, sitting at the mobile court, cautioned and discharged 11 out of the 135 offenders, while 124 were asked to pay a fine of N1, 000 or render one hour community service.
