“He constituted a nuisance at the shop following  an argument between them.

“The complainant reported the case at the police station which led to the accused’s arrest.’’

The offence contravened Sections 166 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the section stipulates three months imprisonment or N45,000 fine or both for offenders.
