Man, 27, in court over alleged stabbing of victim with broken bottle

Kokoye alleged that the accused assaulted Ajuke by stabbing him with broken bottle on his left arm and also beat him.

Ochoche stabbed her neighbour, Ayobami, with a broken bottle for making jest at her.

The accused, who resides at Ajegunle area of Apapa, Lagos, is facing a charge of assault.

The Magistrate, Mr M.A Etti, in his ruling, said that the accused should produce two sureties as part of the bail conditions.

Etti said that the sureties must be gainfully employed and show evidence of two years tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

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.

The case was adjourned until April 12 for mention.
