Auhioboh said that the convict and the complainant’s cousin, Isah Yusuf had an argument and the convict violently attacked Yusuf.

The prosecutor said the convict used a plank and inflicted injury on Yusuf’s forehead.

The prosecutor added that the offence contravened the provisions of Section 253 of the Penal Code.
