Adekunle said the offense is punishable under section 259(d)(3) of the Criminal Code Laws of Osun State of Nigeria 2002.
The prosecution also accused one of the defendants, Siju Ajewole, of obstructing the course of justice by resisting arrest and assaulting an NCDC officer, Mrs Grace Fadare.
All defendants pleaded guilty to the charges.
The defence council Najite Okobi, urged the court to caution and discharge them but the Magistrate, Adebayo Ajala convicted the 56 defendants, sentencing 53 of them to two hours of community services without an option of fine.
Ajala in addition, sentenced Ajewole who was arraigned for assault, to extra two hours of community service or an option of N2,000 fine.
