Wife Slumps In Court As Husband Is Remanded In Agodi Prison
Adebayo Riliwan aged (23) and Muritala Ogundare (29) had pleaded guilty to a two-count charge at the Grade A Customary Court Mapo in Ibadan on Wednesday January 8.
The two parties on January 5 conspired together to commit felony and were caught around Adelakun Memorial Grammar School black spot area.
They were in possession of cutlasses and two wraps of weed suspected to be Indian hemp and were said to be threatening the life of people in the vicinity.
Both parties pleaded guilty to the offence and also pleaded with the court to pardon them as they would be of good characters from henceforth.
But the judge decided to adjourn the case till January 23 and remanded both accused in Agodi Prison in Ibadan till the next hearing of the case.
The outcome was a big shock to Fatimoh, the wife of Adebayo who slumped immediately the judge made the pronouncement.
It took efforts from court officials and others to resuscitate her.
After gaining consciousness, Fatimoh, told sympathizers that she had never been to a prison and none of her family members had either.
"The shock made me faint in court," she said, wondering how life would be for her with her husband locked up in prison.
She was advised to focus on how to get a reliable lawyer ahead of the next hearing on January 23 as both accused were not duly represented by any lawyer.
