An Osun State Magistrate court sitting in Osogbo, on Wednesday, sentenced a man, Jonathan Ukonwe, to 30 days imprisonment for resisting arrest and intentionally disobeying the constituted authority for not wearing facemask.

The 45-year-old man was arraigned for assaulting a female operative of Amotekun Corps.

The prosecutor, ASP Abiodun Fagboyinbo told the court that Jonathan assaulted one Meshack Funmilola (F) of Hunters Group of Nigeria by beating her up while performing her lawful duty on the enforcement of the use of facemask.

He said the convict conducted himself in a manner to cause breach of peace by resisting arrest and intentionally disobeyed the constituted authority and deliberately refused to wear facemask.

The three-count charge filed against the convict read;

Everything is just wrong with this country.  Why must he be sent to our overcrowded jails? A fine should do, even if it's 20k. That'll yield more revenue to the government.  He'll be in jail that's poorly funded and money would be wasted on him throughout his stay. Smh
