The Police, on Thursday, arraigned a 54-year-old woman, Alhaja Bisola Oladipo, before a Badagry Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos over alleged assault and breach of public peace.
The defendant, who resides at Agbabiaka area, Ilogbo-Eremi, Badagry, is facing a two-count charge of assault and breach of public peace.
The Prosecutor, ASP Ikem Uko, told the court that the defendant committed the offences on Sept. 22 at about 3:00 p.m. at Agbabiaka area of Ilogbo-Eremi, Badagry.
Uko said that the defendant assaulted her co-tenant, one Kenneth Osedeba, by biting him on his chest, which caused him bodily harm.
“She also conducted herself in a manner likely to cause breach of public peace by holding his clothes tightly.
“The defendant was arrested by the police and when all efforts to resolve the misunderstanding proved abortive, she was brought to court for prosecution,” he stated.
According to the prosecutor, the offences contravene Sections 172 and 168 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
Chief Magistrate Patrick Adekomaiya granted the defendant bail in the sum of N50,000, with two sureties in like sum.
Adekomaiya, thereafter, adjourned the case till Nov. 16 for mention. (NAN)
