Two brothers on Thursday appeared before an Ikeja Magistrateâ€™s Court for allegedlyÂ assaulting a civil defence corps member who refused them entry into an NYSCÂ orientation camp to trade.
The brothers, Favour Udofi (32) and Uzoma Udofi (24), are facing a two-count chargeÂ of conspiracy and assault before Magistrate C. J. Momodu.
They, however, pleaded not guilty.
The Police prosecutor, Insp. Augustine Orji, said that the defence corps member, Mr.Â Lateef Wasiu, prevented the brothers from entering the camp after they showed him anÂ identity card belonging to a woman.
Orji said that Wasiu had demanded to know the identities of the men and theirÂ intention.
He said that Wasiu was dissatisfied with the claim of one of the brothers that theÂ owner of the identity card allotted them a space in the camp for petty trading.
The prosecutor said that the brothers, displeased at Wasiuâ€™s decision, grabbed him,Â gave him blows and tore his uniform.
He said that the alleged offences were committed on Oct. 31 at the NYSC OrientationÂ Camp, Iyana-Ipaja.
The court granted bail to the brothers in the sum of N80,000 with two sureties each,Â and adjourned further hearing in the case.
