A 35-year-old man identified as Seun Okwuyigbo has been arrested by the police after he was accused of beating and injuring his mother-in-law in the eye.

 

 

He was arraigned in an Ogudu Magistrates’ Court, Lagos on Wednesday as the police charged Okwuyigbo with assault. The Prosecutor, Insp Lucky Ihiehie, told the court that the accused committed the offence at No. 7, Shifawu Street, Ikosi-Ketu, on December 14.

 

He said the accused beat up his mother-in-law, Mrs Tolani Bisiritu, 65, who was trying to find out from her daughter the reason why her husband locked her and the children in a dark room. Ihiehie said the offence contravened the provisions of Sections 173 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015.

 

After the charges were read to him, he pleaded not guilty.  Magistrate E. Kubeinje admitted the accused to bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum.  Kubeinje ordered that the sureties must be gainfully employed and must provide evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State Govt.

 

The magistrate adjourned the case until February 11.
