A 40-year-old housewife, Biola Joshua, has been sentenced to six months of community service by a Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ota, Ogun State for invading her son’s school with thugs.
Mrs. Joshua had on March 11, 2021, invaded her son’s school, Iju-Ebiye High School with thugs to beat up the school principal and a teacher for scolding the student. She was subsequently arrested by the police and charged with conspiracy, assault, and breach of peace.
Delivering judgment in the case, the Magistrate, Shotunde Shotayo, ordered the convict to sweep the school from 8 am to 11 am every day. He also directed that the school open a logbook for the convict, where her daily activities would be recorded for the six-month period.
Shotayo, however, gave Mrs. Joshua a fine option of N30,000 to be given to the injured principal and school official.
