Adeyeye said in court;

“I find him guilty of the offence as charged and he is accordingly convicted. 

“It is obvious that the accused is very ill as he could no longer stand on his feet.

“The accused person, who has been in custody since he was arrested, must have learnt his lessons.

“In the circumstances, the accused person is hereby cautioned and discharged.”
