The chief magistrate court sitting in Idaho, Abeokuta has sentenced a 20 years old, senior secondary school student, Segun Dosunmu to three-week imprisonment for threatening to kill his teacher.
He was convicted by Magistrate S.S Sotayo of Abeokuta Magistrates’ Court, on Thursday.
Dosumu had pleaded guilty to the charge read to him by his prosecutor, Wale Diyaolu, as all evidence presented in court proofed beyond reasonable doubt that the young man was guilty of the offence as charged.
Diyaolu said that the convict, a senior secondary 3 student of Eyinni Comprehensive High School in Iboro, Yewa North Local Government Areas of Ogun State, threatened to kill or injure Mr Ismail Fadeyi, his teacher, with a bottle.
The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Section 86 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun 2006.
The magistrate, therefore, sentenced the convict to three weeks in the correctional centre with hard labour, with an option of N200,000 fine.
