Ahmed Tairu, 35, is facing trial at an Oshodi Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly harassing passing women by touching their buttocks and breasts.

The accused, who resides at No. 26, Brown St., Maryland, Lagos, is arraigned for breach of peace and assault. The prosecutor, Cpl. Kehinde Olatunde told the court that the accused committed the offences on May 11 at New Life Hotel at No. 4, Church St., Oshodi.

“In the process, he tore their uniforms and stabbed one of the guards on the head with a broken bottle and another on his chest.”The prosecutor said the offences contravened Sections 166 and 171 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011. The accused pleaded innocence of the offences. In his ruling, the Magistrate, Akeem Fashola, granted the accused bail in the sum of N50, 000 and adjourned the case to May 21 for mention.
