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.

She said that Yusuf raised an alarm which attracted other neighbours and the convict took to his heels, but was caught.

Auhioboh told the court that the complainant spent N 15, 000 on Yusuf treatment at Gwarinpa and Maitama General Hospitals.

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