An Abeokuta Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, sentenced a 20-year-old secondary school student, Segun Dosumu, to three weeks imprisonment with hard labour, for threatening to kill his teacher.
Dosumu, who resides at Iboro area of Ogun, had pleaded guilty to the charge preferred against him when it was read to him.
Consequently, after the review of facts of the case by the Prosecutor, ASP Wale Diyaolu, the Magistrate, Mr S. S. Sotayo convicted Dosumu of the charge.
Sotayo said that besides the admission of guilt, all the evidence presented in court had proven beyond reasonable doubt that the convict was guilty of the offence as charged.

Earlier while reviewing the facts of the case, Diyaolu had told the court that the defendant committed the offence on Nov. 23 at 9.00 a.m. at Eyinni Comprehensive High School, Iboro, Yewa North of Ogun.
