Police arraign taxi driver for assault

A cab driver in Abuja has been arraigned by the police on a three count charge of criminal force, assault and inciting disturbance.

Infidelity is a ground for divorce

The defendant, a resident of Katampe Mpape, also in Abuja, is facing a three-count charge of force, assault and inciting disturbance.

The prosecutor, Zanna Dalhatu, told the court that Ikechukwu Nwafor of National Union of Road Transport Workers reported the matter at the Utako Police Station on August 29

He said that the defendant refused to buy his daily Union tickets when Nwafor was selling along Utako Market in Abuja and Nwafor and other Union officials decided to take him to the office at Jabi Park, Abuja.

Dalhatu further said that the defendant, however, diverted his car to a car wash and asked the boys at the car wash, numbering about 20 to beat the complainant and inflict injuries on him.

He said the offences contravened sections 262, 265 and 114of the Penal Code.

However, Nwafor pleaded not guilty to the three-count charge and the presiding officer, Alhaji Abubakar Sadiq, admitted him to bail in the sum of N10,000 with one surety in like sum.

Sadiq adjourned the case until Sept. 28 for further hearing.
