A small minded criminal has been sent to prison for biting off policeman's ear.
A 27-year-old man, Ibrahim Ayelangbe, has been remanded in prison custody by an Ikeja Chief Magistrates' Court sitting in Lagos State, for allegedly assaulting and biting off the ear of a police officer, Corporal Ebere Nwogidi, who had tried to apprehend him while trying to break into a house located at No. 21, Temple Road, Ikoyi.
