Food vendor

The accused, whose address was not disclosed  in court, is facing a charge of assault before a Badagry Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State.

The prosecutor, Insp. Akpan Ikem, told the court that the accused committed the offence on March 3 at the Iledu town, Araromi in Badagry area of Lagos State.

He alleged that the accused punched the complainant, one Funmilayo Aderoju, several times and poured sand on her body.

“The accused and the complainant got into an argument over a plate of food which the complainant refused to give to him.

“Before anybody could intervene, the accused had beaten-up the complainant.

“He was then arrested and taken to the police station.’’

The offence contravened Section 170 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The magistrate, Mr Jimoh Adefioye, granted the accused bail in the sum of N50, 000 and one surety in like sum.

Adefioye adjourned the case to April 12 for further hearing.
