Court orders arrest of Osun blogger for alleged contempt

An Osogbo Chief Magistrates Court on Friday issued a warrant of arrest for a Facebook blogger, Moshood Qaudri, for allegedly disrespecting the court.

The Magistrate, Olusegun Ayilara, had ordered the arrest of the blogger due to the magnitude of the offence committed.

Quadri, who is facing a three – count charge on defamation and breach of public peace in case number; MOS/300c /2021, had refused to appear in court on two consecutive occasions.

The State Prosecuting Counsel, Mr .O. Akintayo had told the court that the defendant committed the offence within the Osun State High Court premises, Osogbo.

Akintayo said the defendant popularly known as “Yessaloonaka” had jumped bail in a criminal defamation case initiated against him, thereby, disrespecting the court.

The prosecutor revealed Quadri made a live video of himself on Facebook where he made defamatory comments and remarks on notable Islamic dignitaries for no justifiable reason.

The Magistrate, however, adjourned the case to October 29 for hearing pending his appearance in court.
