In an interesting tale of double trouble, a 51-year-old civil servant, Babatunde Ojulari, lost four teeth after getting into a fight with his neighbour, for barging into the toilet while it was in use by his wife.
Narrating how the incident happened Ojulari revealed:
“On Friday, January 8, 2016, my wife complained that Sunday (Akinola) barged in while she was in the toilet. Our neighbours and I begged her.
Two days after, I informed Sunday’s wife about what he did. We were on it when he showed up. He punched me and hit me with an iron rod. I lost four of my teeth in the process. He was not remorseful. He still threatened to kill me,” Ojulari told the police.
After the incident which took place in Mushin, Lagos, the victim was taken to a hospital for treatment, while Akinola was arrested after the incident was reported to the police.
A police prosecutor, Inspector Benson Emuerhi, brought Akinola before an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court on one count of assault.
The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge and was admitted to bail by the Chief Magistrate, Mrs. O.A. Olayinka, in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum.
The case was adjourned till March 15, 2016.
