Osun Court Remands Woman for Biting Neighbour’s private part
An Ile-Ife Magistrates’ Court in Osun on Monday ordered that a woman, Nifemi Ajayi, who allegedly bit her neighbour on the scrotum, be remanded.
The police charged Nifemi with assault.
Magistrate Olusola Aluko also ordered the Defence Counsel to file a written application for bail.
Aluko therefore ordered the remand of the defendant in Ilesa correctional centre.
The magistrate adjourned the matter until November 15 for bail consideration.
Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Insp Sunday Osanyintuyi, had told the court that the defendant committed the offence on August 24 around 8PM at No 21, Oke-Soda, Ile-Ife.
Osanyintuyi said that the defendant bit Olayera Boluwaji on his scrotum and also on his stomach.
He added that the offence contravened the provisions of Section 355 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun, 2002.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty.
The Defence Counsel, Mr. Philip Fasanmoye, made an oral bail application.
He prayed the court to admit his client in most liberal terms.
