Appealing to the court to tamper justice with mercy, Franklin said he did not understand what came over him at the time.

Surprisingly, the accused who was dissatisfied with the ruling went on to cause some drama in the court afterwards.

Franklin attempted to commit suicide right there in the court, breaking tiles and bottles on his head and stabbing himself with the sharp edges.

Fortunately, his handcuffed hands restricted the level of damage he could inflict on himself even as Prisons armed squad and able-bodied youths present in court managed to subdue him.
