A mobile court at King’s Square, Benin, on Thursday evening convicted 21 people for illegal parking, dropping passengers in unauthorised places, driving one-way as well as street trading.
The State Prosecuting Counsel, Mr Ayo Aigbokhiade, said that all the convicts who were apprehended within the Benin metropolis, pleaded liable.
Presiding Chief Magistrate, Prince Mutairu Oare, ordered the street trader who was convicted to pay fine of N3,000 while other 20 convicted traffic offenders should pay a fine between N20,000 and N50,000 each within two days.
Oare, however, cautioned and discharged one other offender who pleaded not liable and was able to prove his case in court.
