A Surulere Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Monday granted N200,000 bail to 38-year-old unemployed man, Arinze Ebosie, who allegedly assaulted his wife, Victoria Nwokoro.

The Magistrate, Mr Aro Lambo, who gave the ruling, asked Ebosie to provide two sureties in like sum as part of the bail condition.

He said one of the sureties must be an employee in the public or private sector, while the other must be a cleric or a community leader.

Lambo said the sureties should show evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State Government and adjourned mention until April 24.

The defendant, of no fixed address, is facing one-count charge of assault.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Anthonia Osayande, had told the court that the defendant committed the offence on March 17 at No.11, Ladega Street, Surulere, Lagos.

Osayande said that Ebosie, who was separated from his wife for a while now, found out where she was currently living and he went to the house and beat her up.

She said “Victoria was rushed to the hospital by a neighbour, who consequently reported the matter to police.”

She added that the offence contravened Section 170 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
