A 38-year-old, Tajudeen Folorunsho, is to spend the next two months in jail for contempt of court, an Ota Magistrates’ Court in Ogun ruled on Monday.
The senior magistrate, Mr S. O. Banwo, gave the verdict without giving the convict an option of fine.
Folorunsho, who lives at No. 28, Akintoye St. Iyana-Iyesi, Ota, Ogun, had pleaded guilty to the charge of contempt.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Sgt. Chudu Gbesi, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on March 14 at about 9.00 a. m. at the court.
Gbesi said the defendant disregarded the court’s order by jumping bail.
The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Section 133 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006.
