A commercial motorcycle operator, Mohammed Ajah, was on Friday brought before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, for allegedly using his motorcycle to block his landlady from entering her house. The tenant, Ajah, 24, resident at No. 1 Oshinaga St., Oke-Ira, Ogba, Lagos, is therefore facing two counts bordering on assault.
The prosecutor alleged that the defendant assaulted one Mrs. Franca Enweke by pushing her, following unresolved differences, resulting to her sustaining bruises on her right fingers.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Michael Unah, had told the court that the defendant committed the offences on December 28, 2018 about 10.30 p. m. at their residence.
He said the defendant conducted himself in a manner likely to cause breach of peace by violently threatening the complainant.
According to the prosecutor, the defendant blocked the complainant’s entrance, thereby preventing her from entering her house with her car.
He said this led to an argument and in the process, the defendant pushed the complainant and she fell down.
The Chief Magistrate, Mr. A. A. Fashola, granted the accused bail in the sum of N50,000, with one surety in like sum.
Fashola said the surety must be gainfully employed, with an evidence of two-year tax payment to the Lagos State Government and have his address verified by the court.
He adjourned the case until February 18 for mention.
