Police arraign applicant for allegedly assaulting a lady

Swem alleged that rather than pay his share of the bill, the accused pounced on the complainant and assaulted her to the extent of sustaining injuries.

 

The accused, who hails from Nyanya Gwandara, Nasarawa State, is facing one-count charge of criminal force.

The Presiding Officer, Mr Yakubu Ishaku, granted the accused bail in the sum of N100,000 and also ordered him to produce one surety in like sum.

Ishaku directed that the surety must be residing within the court’s jurisdiction and should present two passport photographs as well as an affidavit of means to the court registrar.

He also ordered the accused to take an undertaking to be of good behaviour and to live peacefully with the complainant, Blessing Ahonsi.

Ishaku adjourned the case until August 29.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Mr Frank Swem, had told the court that the accused committed the offences on August 12 at about 9.00 a.m. in Nyanya Gwandara.

Swem alleged that the complainant, who was residing in the same house with the accused, reported the case of assault at the divisional police station in Masaka Nasarawa.

He told the court that the accused was relocating to another apartment when the complainant approached him and demanded for his share of electricity bills.

The prosecutor said the offences contravened Sections 265 of the Penal Code.

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