He also ordered the accused to take an undertaking to be of good behaviour and to live peacefully with the complainant, Blessing Ahonsi.

Ishaku adjourned the case until August 29.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Mr Frank Swem, had told the court that the accused committed the offences on August 12 at about 9.00 a.m. in Nyanya Gwandara.

Swem alleged that the complainant, who was residing in the same house with the accused, reported the case of assault at the divisional police station in Masaka Nasarawa.
