A hairdresser identified as Gbemisola Adejumo and a 30-year-old driver Michael Godwin have both landed in court after they were both involved in a public fight which saw them both smear themselves with faeces.
The pair who were arraigned on a two -count charge of public fight and polluting the atmosphere with faeces appeared on Tuesday before an Iyaganku Chief Magistrates’ Court in Ibadan.
The accused both of NW6/116 Ayorinde Street, Queen Cinema, Adamasingba area, Ibadan, according to the Prosecutor, Sgt. Salewa Hammed were engaged in a public fight on January 5, at about 7:30am at their residence.
While addressing the court, the Prosecutor said; “During the fight the two accused persons allegedly fought each other by pouring faeces on themselves thereby polluting the atmosphere with faeces.
“This makes it noxious to the health of the general public.” He said that the accused persons engaged in the fight over the use of toilet in the compound. It was Godwin that first entered the rest room before Gbemisola knocked and asked Godwin to come out as she was pressed, later it led to a fight between them,” he added.
Hammed said the offence committed by the accused persons who however pleaded not guilty to the charges when read to them in court, contravened section 83 and 247 (a) of the Criminal Code Cap 38, Vol.II Laws of Oyo State 2000.
The pair were however handed bail in the sum of N75, 000 with two sureties each in like sum by the Chief Magistrate, Mrs Abiona Richard who adjourned the case to March 3rd for further hearing.
