Wasiu, 33 and Sulaimon, 22, both residents of No. 19, Calvary close, Obawole, Iju in Lagos State, are facing four-count charge bordering on breach of peace and assault.
The Prosecutor, Insp. Ezekiel Ayorinde, told the court that the accused with some others still at large committed the offences on April 26 at Obawole Community, Iju-Ishaga, Lagos.
He said the accused assaulted Adufe by stabbing his eye and beating him with sticks and cable wires “Adufe said the trouble started when he went to Wasiu’s wife to ask for the money she borrowed from him in March.
“The accused, then armed themselves with dangerous weapons, took Adufe to a carnal near their residence and accused him of having an affair with Wasiu’s wife before beating him,’’ he said. Ayorinde said the offence contravened Sections 166, 170, 171 and 244 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
Section 171 prescribes three-year jail term for offenders.
The accused, however, pleaded innocence of the offences. Awope adjourned the case to June 3 for mention.
