Two men –Edward Ndidi and Paul Oges — were on Thursday charged with beating up their female co-tenant at an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court.

The accused– Ndidi, 29, a student; and Oges, 30, a businessman — both residents of Gowon Estate, Egbeda, however, pleaded innocence of the offences.

But the Prosecutor, Sgt. Godwin Awase told court that the accused committed the offences on Aug. 3 in Gowon Estate, Egbeda.

He said the accused conspired to assault their neighbour, Miss Patience Iyeonema, by beating her and injuring her.

“The accused were shouting, calling the complainant a prostitute, the complainant ignored them and left the house to buy food.

“The accused, who have been trying to date her all to no avail, followed her to where she went to eat and were still harassing her  publicly calling her unpleasant names,” he told the court.

Awase said when the accused discovered that the complainant did not react, they went further to assault her by beating her.

“The duo jointly descended on the complainant and inflicted injury on her forehead with a chair.

“The complainant was bleeding from her head and she went to the police station to report,” he said.

The offences contravened Sections 173 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015(Revised).

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Section 173 attracts three years jail term for assault occasioning harm.

The Magistrate, Mr J.A. Adigun, granted bail to the accused in the sum of N100, 000 each with two sureties each, insisting that the sureties should be gainfully employed with evidence of two years tax payment.

The case was adjourned until Aug. 30 for mention. (Daily Trust)
