The defendant identified as Ifeoma Okoroafor, had made this revelation on Friday at a Gudu Upper Area Court in the Federal Capital Territory, stating that she inflicted injuries on a man because he touched her breast.

Okoroafor who lives in the Dutse Area of Apo, had reportedly pleaded not guilty to a two-count charge of joint act and causing hurt contrary to Section 79 and 245 of the Penal Code.

During her statement, Okoroafor revealed, saying:

“My Lord, the nominal complainant, Musa Goddy, touched me inappropriately and without my consent, while I was waiting for a commercial vehicle to take me home after work at night.

“The complainant beat me up and tore my clothes when I queried him for his action.’’

The news reports reveal that the timely intervention of three other women had saved her from being killed by the complainant.

Okoroafor further revealed to the court that the cloth she has worn to the court had been given to her by a police officer at the station, allowing her to appear decently at the court.

The prosecutor, Urom Inah, said that Goddy of Police Barracks, Garki, had reported the matter at the Garki Police Station on February 28, adding that the defendant had attacked Goddy, inflicting injuries on him with a bottle for no apparent reason.

Okoroafor had reportedly been unable to give any satisfactory account of her actions during follow up police investigation.

The judge, Umar Kagarko, reportedly granted bail to the defendant in the sum of N20, 000 with one reliable surety in like sum.
