Helen Ogochukwu, a 35-year-old trader, on Wednesday appeared before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court for allegedly beating her neighbour, Mr Dotun Shomoye, to a pulp.
 
Vanguard reports that Ogochukwu, who resides at No. 5, Adekoya St., Oshodi, Lagos, pleaded not guilty to a three-count charge of assault, willful damage and breach of peace.
 
The Prosecutor, Insp. Eruada Victor, told the court that the accused committed the offences on March 4 at her residence. Victor said the accused assaulted her co-tenant, Mr Dotun Shomoye, by beating him to a pulp.
 
He said the assault followed an argument between the accused and the complainant, Shomoye. He said the accused tore the complainant’s T-shirt valued at N2,000, while the case was reported to the police and the accused was arrested.
 
The offences contravened Sections 166, 171 and 337 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
 
Sections 171 and 337 prescribe three-year jail term for assault, and damage.
 
The Magistrate, Mrs G.O. Anifowoshe, granted the accused bail in the sum of N2,000 with one surety in like sum, one of who must be gainfully employed and show evidence of a two-year tax payment to the Lagos State Government.
 
Further hearing in the case has been fixed for April 12.
