Man Tells Judge To Send Him To Jail...

This is new. A man accused of damaging a car and a windscreen said that he was ready to go to jail. The man identified as Saburi Yusuf was arraigned at an Abeokuta Magistrates’ Court sitting in Isabo on Friday on one-count charge of malicious damage, pleaded guilty to the offence.

According to reports, when the Magistrate asked the defendant if he would be able to pay for damages rather than go to prison, he said he preferred going to jail.

“I rather go to jail instead of paying damages, I have no source of getting any money,” Yusuf said.

After hearing from both the defendant and the complainant, Olayinka remanded Yusuf in prison and adjourned the case until January 26, 2018 for more facts and sentence.

The prosecutor, Insp. Olakunle Shonibare, had told the court that Yusuf committed the offence on October 28 at Adu village, OGTV/Ajebo road in Abeokuta.

Shonibare said the defendant unlawfully damaged the body of an Opel Sintra car valued at N38,000 and the car’s windscreen valued at N25,000 and two glasses of sliding windows valued at N30,000 belonging to Tunde Olalaye.

He said when Yusuf was interrogated after his arrest, he claimed he was sleeping by the roadside after attending a naming ceremony and was drunk​.

​”All of a sudden, I felt someone kicked me and I later discovered that it was the complainant.

“I then went to his house to damage his properties because he even undressed me”​, ​Shonibare​ quoted the suspect as saying.

  1. This case is somehow. I don't even understand the man.

  2. Wicked judge! Why adjourning the case till January? Give your verdict and allow the guy face his crime.. Why can't a case be handled in a court for a very short period of time? Why keeping him long? Why why why??? Nigerian judiciary system is a big joke.


  3. Which one is adjourn the case again? Haba judge

  4. #Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture the heart*
