Hairstylist remanded in Kirikiri prison for biting a policeman

On Thursday, an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court remanded a 23-year-old hair stylist, Comfort Ishukwu, who allegedly assaulted a policeman, in Kirikiri Prisons, pending when her bail conditions would be met.

The defendant, who resides at No. 1, Orile-Agege, a Lagos suburb, is facing a two-count of breach of peace and assault.  The Prosecutor, Seargent Nomayo Kenrich, had told the court that the defendant committed the offence on January 18, on Orile Road, Agege, Lagos.

According to him, the defendant assaulted one Seargent Okpanachi Nicodemus while he was on duty, by biting him on the left side of his mouth, following a disagreement. The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs. E. Kubeinje, granted Ishukwu a bail of N200,000 with one surety in like sum. She said the surety should be gainfully employed with an evidence of two years tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

Kubeinje adjourned the case until March 21 for hearing.
