“The accused unlawfully damaged the head lamp and the rear lamp of a Toyota Hilux belonging to the VIO, valued at N70, 000,’’ he said.

The prosecutor said that the offences contravened Sections 166 (1) and 337 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Section 166 stipulates a N15, 000 fine for the first offence and a fine of N45, 000 or a three-month imprisonment or both for every subsequent offence.

The counsel to the defence, Mrs Helen Ibeji, urged the court to grant his client bail on liberal terms.

The magistrate, Mr W. B. Balogun, granted the accused bail in the sum of N100, 000 with one surety in like sum.
