A Customary Court in Ibadan on Wednesday ordered a man, Jimoh Falola, to wash public toilets for 30 days for being rude to the court.
In his ruling, the President of the court, Henry Agbaje held that Falola had no regards for constituted authority from the way he insulted the court while the court was sitting, News Agency of Nigeria reported.
Falola is also to clear the bushes and sweep the road for a month.
Agbaje also ordered Falola to be taken away by the police until he was ready to comport himself in a civil and orderly manner.
“He is ordered to embark on a 30-day community service which includes clearing the bush, sweeping the road, and washing of public toilets.”
The arbitrator subsequently adjourned the case to March 29 for hearing.
According to the report, a woman simply identified as Opeyemi, filed a divorce suit against her estranged husband, Falola who refused to appear on two sittings.
When he finally appeared, he accused the court workers of receiving money as an inducement from his wife so as to favour her. He also shouted at the top of his voice while the court was sitting.
