Magistrate Orders Lawyer To Frog-jump For Noise-making by mukina2: 9:39am On Jul 20, 2012
It was like a drama yesterday during a Court session, when the presiding Chief Magistrate of an Osogbo Magistrate Court, Adewunmi Makanjuola ordered a middle-aged lawyer, Nnajite Okobie, to observe a five-minue frog-jump as a punishment for making noise during the court proceeding.

Makanjuola, who was presiding over a case of alleged rape of an 11-year-old primary school girl was apparently disturbed by the noise emanating from Okobie, who was having a conversation with two people suspected to be his clients in the court premises.

He had earlier sent the court orderly to warn him to desist from making noise but he failed to adhere to the warning of the court.
Provoked by the action of Okobie and his two clients, Makanjuola therefore ordered the court orderly to invite the trio before him.

The Chief Magistrate told them to decide on whether to be docked for contempt of court or observe a five-minute punishment of frog-jumping and then ordered the court orderly to sanction the trio by engaging them in a five-minute frog-jump stressing that their action had put the court in disrepute.

It was a sight to behold for the workers of the court. While some were full of pity for Okobie, others were seen making mockery of him.

Re: Magistrate Orders Lawyer To Frog-jump For Noise-making by Nobody: 10:14am On Jul 20, 2012
Looks to me like the man was a witness in the court proceeding and was only incidentally a lawyer by profession. Why else would the magistrate have had to send an orderly to warn him and later to invite him. In that case, I see the jumps as the penalty for contempt of court not strange.
Re: Magistrate Orders Lawyer To Frog-jump For Noise-making by atuboweke(m): 10:15am On Jul 20, 2012
ABSOLUTE RUBBISH!! My Learned colleague is a disgrace to our dear profession. It is more honorable to be docked for contempt of court than that stupid act of (jump like nwa awo). We witness on daily basis during court session some senior lawyer and SAN making unbelievable noise. Any ways as the post stated, it happened in “Osogbo”…more like “Osogbo Justice”

Melahou: this is rubbish...tellin a lawyer 2 do frog jump...

But he gave the irresponsible lawyer An option. The lawyer preferred the frog jump. Would there be such options if indeed lawyers behave so contemptuously in a respectable court of law in the developed country in your mind?
The option would perhaps be a social service for 2 weeks or so, isn't it?

You are right Judge - the chatterbox lawyers have learnt their lessons. They will maintain silence next time. No shakin !!

The magistrate gave them an option of either to be docked or do a frog jump... There was never a time he forced it on them. The lawyer should have chosen to be docked but instead he chose to do a frog jump which is cheaper
