Illegal Invasion: Court orders 43-year-old woman to sweep school for six months

A Magistrate Court sitting in Ota area of Ogun State has ordered a 43-year-old woman, Biola Joshua, to sweep Iju-Ebiye High School premises for six months.

The police had charged Mrs. Joshua with conspiracy, assault and breach of peace after she allegedly invaded the school, which her son attends, with thugs.

The police prosecutor, Cynthia Ejezie, said Joshua, her son and others at large, had on March 11, 2021, at about 2:00 p.m. invaded the principal’s office and that of the health officer of the school, and caused them bodily injuries.

In his ruling, Magistrate Shotunde Shotayo convicted the woman of the offence and ordered her to sweep the school from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. every day for six months.

The Magistrate ordered that the school should open a logbook for the convict, where her daily activities would be recorded.

Shotayo, however, gave her the option of paying an N30,000 fine.
