Mr. Oke said that the prosecution had proved beyond reasonable doubt that the convict was guilty of the charge preferred against him.

Mr. Oni, whose address was not provided, was arraigned on a one count charge of impersonation.

He had however pleaded not guilty.

He said that the offence contravened Section 484 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006
