“The two accused persons went ahead and started stoning the police station gate, they also stoned some boys sitting along the roadside.

“The boys got angry with the two accused persons and others now at large, which resulted into conflict among the two groups, but was later settled amicably.

“After a while, the two accused persons and others still at large flew into the street in a manner to cause a breach of the peace when a rescue patrol team invaded the scene and arrested the two accused persons, while others fled.

“Before they were caught, they had already damaged a kiosk, property of one Azizat Adeboye,"  the prosecutor said.
