Three tenants docked for fighting in public

Three tenants who allegedly fought themselves and constituted a nuisance in their neighbourhood were on Tuesday docked in the Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court.

The police charged Chidinma Orebiyi, 37, Favour Ikenna, 21, and Robert Ikenna, 24, who all reside in Oshodi, Lagos, with breach of peace and causing grievous harm.

The prosecution counsel, Raji Akeem, told the court that the defendants on July 24 fought over whose turn it was to fetch water.

The prosecutor alleged that the defendants used sharp objects to injure themselves.

The offence, he said, contravenes sections 54 and 246 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015. The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Chief Magistrate B. O Osunsanmi granted the defendants N50,000 bail each with one surety in like sum and adjourned the case until September 28 for mention.
