An unemployed man, Jamiu Abdul-Rafiu, who allegedly stabbed his friend with a broken bottle, has appeared before an Ikorodu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State.
The accused, 32, whose address is unknown, was docked before Magistrate A. Oshodi-Makanju on assault.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty.
But the prosecutor, Sgt. Kemi Adeniran insisted that the accused committed the offence on July 30 at Ajegunle Bus Stop in Ikorodu.
Adeniran told the court that the accused used a broken bottle to stab his friend, Mr Obatola Oyinbile, on his left armpit.
“The man is still in the hospital receiving treatment.”
The offence contravened Section 171 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
Oshodi-Makanju granted the accused a N150,000 bail with two responsible sureties who must show evidence of tax payment.
The case has been adjourned to Aug. 25 for mention.
