Despite Dosumu’s admission of guilt, the Magisterate claimed that all the evidence presented to the court proved beyond a reasonable doubt that he was guilty of the crime charged.

The prosecution, Diyaolu, had previously informed the court that the convict committed the crime on Tuesday at Eyinni Comprehensive High School in Ogun State’s Iboro Yewa North Local Government Area.

The SSS3 student, according to Diyaolu, threatened to kill or injure the instructor, Mr Ismail Fadeyi, with a shattered bottle.

The offense, according to Diyaolu, was in violation of Section 86 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun State, 2006.
