The judge also ordered that Falola be taken away by the police until he is ready to comport himself in an orderly civil manner in the court premises.


Falola's wife, Opeyemi, had filed a divorce suit against him. All attempts to bring him to the court as a party in the suit proved abortive as he refused to appear on two sittings.

He eventually appeared on Wednesday but was shouting at the top of his voice while the court was sitting.

He also accused the court workers of receiving money as an inducement from his wife so as to favour her in the ongoing suit.

Falola's behaviours angered the presiding judge who ordered that he should wash the toilets for a 30-day period. The case was later adjourned to March 29 for a hearing.
