The prosecutor, Insp Nwosu George, told the court that the accused assaulted Ofoke with a knife, stabbing him on his manhood on November 17, at his residence.

George said, “Ofoke said that he was coming from work when he saw other tenants in the compound gathering around Fwoms.

“The complainant said he asked one of his neighbours what had happened and he was told that Fwoms damaged the ceiling of the house to connect electricity supply without informing others.

“Ofoke, who confronted the accused on what he had done, told him it was only a thief that would damage the ceiling of the house without informing other tenants.

“He said the accused, who was annoyed about the statement, brought out a knife from his pocket and stabbed his manhood with it.

“The complainant said he was quickly rushed to the hospital by his neighbours who were at the scene of the incident and the case was reported to the police, which led to the arrest of the accused person."

According to him, the offence contravened Section 244 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

However, the accused person pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Daily Post reports that the Magistrate M.O Osinbajo granted the accused bail in the sum of N100, 000 with two sureties.
