Court jails two for punching a woman

An Ota Magistrates’ Court in Ogun on Thursday sentenced two men, Lekan Toba and Alayemi Bamidele, to three months imprisonment each, for punching a woman and causing a breach of peace.

Toba and Bamidele, aged 21 and 33 respectively, had pleaded guilty to a three-count charge of conspiracy, assault and breach of peace brought against them by the police.

The Magistrate, Mrs A. O. Adeyemi, convicted and sentenced the duo without an option of a fine.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp E. O. Adaraloye, told the court that the convicts, whose addresses were not provided, and others still at large, committed the offences on May 25 at 9.00 a.m. behind Garage, Sango-Ota.

Adaraloye said that the convicts conspired and conducted themselves in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace by intimidating and assaulting the complainant, Atinuke Agbajeola, with fist blows.

He said that the offences contravened Sections 351, 390(9) and 516 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006.
