The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the court had, two weeks ago, ordered the judgment debtor to pay a sum of N12, 250, as feeding allowance to his child.

On the date of adjournment, he paid N10, 000 and has yet to pay the balance.

Kayode, 35, a tailor, told the court that he was unable to raise the whole money due to the low patronage in his business.

He said that he tried his best not to disobey the order of the court, but all the money he could get was N10, 000.

The judgment debtor implored the court to give him more time to enable him look for the balance to pay.

The president of the court, Mrs Olayinka Akomolede, ordered the judgment debtor to be remanded in prison  until he was able to balance his debt.

She, however, adjourned the case to June 29 for report on the payment.
