Earlier, the prosecutor, Sgt. Olusegun Kokoye, told the court that the accused, who entered a not guilty plea, committed the offence on March 5 at Suru-Alaba Market in Ajegunle area of Apapa, Lagos.

He said that the assault followed an argument which ensued between the accused and the complainant.

Kokoye said that after Aniekan had stabbed the complainant, he tried to escape, but was apprehended by some pedestrians at the scene and handed over to the police.

He said that the offences contravened Section 171 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Section 171 prescribes three years jail term for assault occasioning harm, if found guilty.
