A 22-year-old student, Mandela Sunday, who allegedly used razor blade to inflict injuries on his neighbour, was on Wednesday granted N50,000 bail by an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court, Lagos State.
The Chief Magistrate, Mrs A.O. Gbajumo, also granted Sunday two sureties in like sum as part of the bail conditions.
She said that the sureties must provide evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State Government.
Gbajumo then adjourned the case to June 7 for trial.
The accused, who resides at No. 33 Sumonu St. Okeira, Lagos, is facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and assault.
Earlier the Prosecutor, Cpl. Michael Unah, had told the court that the accused and some others still at large committed the offence on May 25, at the accused residence.
He said the accused assaulted one Razak Animashaun during an argument they had over money issues.
“The victim is in a hospital recuperating from the multiple injuries he sustained from the assault,” he said.
Unah said the offences contravened sections 243 and 410 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Section 243 prescribes a seven–year jail term for any person who unlawfully caused grievous harm to another, while 410 provides a two-year jail term for conspiracy.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge. (NAN)
