The Prosecuting Counsel, Mr Ayo Aigbokhiade, said that all the 24 convicts, who were apprehended within the Benin metropolis, pleaded guilty.

Presiding Chief Magistrate, Mr Mutairu Oare, ordered those who drove against traffic  to pay a fine of N25,000 each, while those convicted for illegal parking of their vehicles were to pay N30,000 fine each.
