37-year-old suspect gets N50, 000 bail for stabbing man with broken bottle

A 37-year-old, Yomi Adams, was on Mon­day charged with stabbing a man with a bro­ken bottle at a Surelere Chief Magistrates’ Court.
Adams, whose address is unknown, was, however, ad­mitted to a bail of N50,000.
He is standing trial on a three-count charge of con­spiracy, assault and stealing.
The Chief Magistrate, Mrs M.I. Dan-Oni, who gave the ruling, said the accused should also produce two sureties in like sum.
One of the sureties must be a blood relation of the ac­cused while the other surety should be gainfully em­ployed with an evidence of tax payment to the govern­ment, she added.
Earlier, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Christopher Okoliko told the court that the accused with others still at large, commit­ted the offences at Salvage Street, Orile-Iganmu, at about 10.30 a.m. on Jan. 22.
According to him, the ac­cused and others assaulted a man, Izuchukwu Umeh, and stabbed him with broken bottles on his head and hand, causing him bodily harm.
During the attack, he said, Okoliko alleged that the accused stole a phone valued at N18,000 and N20,000 cash belonging to the complainant, Umeh.
“The complainant, who recognised a member of the gang, reported the case at the police station which led to the arrest of the ac­cused.”
The offences contravened Sections 171, 285(1) and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
The case was adjourned to Feb. 17 for mention.
