A Customary court in Ibadan has ordered a man, Jimoh Falola, to wash public toilets for 30 days for his unruly behaviour in court.
It also ordered him to clear the bushes and sweep the road for a month as a punishment for disobeying a constituted authority during court sitting.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the President of the court, Henry Agbaje gave the ruling on Wednesday in Ibadan, Oyo State Capital.
The arbitrator 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”.
Falola was taken to court by a woman simply identified as Opeyemi who filed a divorce suit against him.
Falola had refused to appear on two sittings before he finally appeared in the court where he also shouted at the top of his voice during the court sitting.
He was said to have after accused the court workers of receiving money as an inducement from his wife so as to favour her.
The court subsequently adjourned the case to March 29 for hearing.
