Another Nigerian man appears before judge

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the same judge was hailed on social media for his lovely handling of a case involving a Nigerian man that was brought before his court.

In one of his televised judicial works on the program Caught in Providence, a Nigerian man accused of going through the red light was brought before Judge Caprio.

In a heartwarming video shared on TikTok, the man appeared with his daughter named Tofunmi in court.

Judge Caprio told Tofunmi that her dad was accused of going through the red light. He then made her watch a video proof.

Admitting that her dad did commit the offense, Tofunmi informed the judge in the course of their back-and-forth convo that she was actually in the car when it happened.
