A cook has been arraigned in court for poisoning food meant for his boss' guest.
Adomaya appeared before Magistrate Ade Adefulire, where he faced a two-count charge bordering on attempted poisoning, for the offence allegedly committed on July 19, at his employer's residence at Justice Court, Lekki.
The police prosecutor, Ben Ekundayo, told the court that Adomaya was told by his employer to prepare a meal for a guest but the cook allegedly poured a liquid substance suspected to be poison on the food.
“After the accused served the food which had an offensive odour, he fled the house and later came back in the middle of the night to pack his belongings but he was caught and arrested,” Ekundayo said, adding that the offences contravened Sections 241 and 404 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
