Man sentenced two weeks for making calls in court



Justice Sikiru Oyinloye of a Kwara High Court in Ilorin has jailed a young man, identified as Abdulwahab Adebayo, to two weeks in a correctional facility for receiving phone calls during court proceedings.

Abdulwahab was in the court for a hearing and was repeatedly picking up his calls. Justice Oyinloye said the convict go against the rule of the court and when he was summoned by the police officer attached to the court to stop disturbing the court, he refused.
 Oyinloye ruled:
The convict refused to stop disturbing the court until another policeman dragged him off the court. He also exhibited a rude attitude in court, as he shouted and claimed to be innocent. The court premises is not a commercial call centre where anybody can receive or make calls as they wish.
People commit contempt of court with negligence. Ignorance of the law is an offence, I hereby sentence you to two weeks imprisonment, without an option of fine,” .
