Mobile Court convicts 33 persons for violation of COVID-19 protocolsA 29-year-old man, Oluwafemi Seyi, on Friday, appeared before an Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrates’ Court over alleged breach of peace.

Seyi, whose address was not provided, is facing a three-count charge bordering on  breach of peace and threatening violence.

He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The prosecutor, Insp. Johnson Okunade, told the court that the defendant committed the offences on Feb.18 at No 40, Bamgboye St., Ado-Ekiti.

Okunade said the defendant conducted himself in a manner likely to cause breach of the peace when he threatened to injure  the complainant, Dada Oreoluwa, over an undisclosed matter.

He said the offences contravened Sections 249 and 86(1) of the Criminal Law of Ekiti State, 2012.

Okande urged the court to adjourn the case to enable him assemble his witnesses.
