Man to pay N450,000 for allegedly beating another with wood


A 28-year-old man, Monday Michael, was on Monday charged before an Ota Magistrates Court in Ogun for alleged assault.
Michael, who lives at No. 36, Fadipe Street, Iyana-Ilogbo, Ota, is facing a two-count of assault and conspiracy.
The Prosecutor, Sgt. Chudu Gbesi told the court that the accused and others still at large, committed the offences on July 25 at about 7.00 p. m. at Iyana-Iyesi, Ota.
Gbesi said that the accused and his accomplices conspired to assault one Jelili Badru by using a plank wood to inflict injuries on his neck.
He said that the offences contravened Sections 351 and 452 of the Criminal Code, Vol. 1, Laws of Ogun, 2006.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The Senior Magistrate, Mr S. O. Banwo, granted bail to the accused in the sum of N450,000 with two sureties in like sum.
Banwo said that the sureties must reside within the court’s jurisdiction and swear to an affidavit of means.
He also said that the sureties should submit four recent passport photographs to the court and show evidence of tax payment from the Ogun Government.
The case was adjourned until Sept. 20, for hearing.
