Fashola Slams N300,000 Bail On Husband For Beating Wife
He organized a party at his residence in Lagos on December 26, with many of his friends in attendance.
They ate drank and had fun, after which they went out to continue the groove ‘away’.
Then Stephen Chinwuko’s phone rang, and it was his wife, Josephine, calling to inform him of a visitor who had come to also attend the party.
According to the prosecutor, Sgt. Michael Unah, when the 36-year-old got home, he was angry at his wife for letting a stranger into his house, and as a result, pounced on her under the influence of alcohol and caused her bodily harm. He was arrested.
The case was taken to court, and on Monday, January 14, 2019, Chief Magistrate A. A. Fashola granted the accused bail in the sum of N300, 000 with one surety.
Chinwuko, who resides at No. 17, Seriki Aro St., Ikeja, Lagos, is facing a two-count charge bordering on assault which he committed under alcoholic influence.
The prosecutor said that the offences committed by the accused contravened Sections 172 and 173 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015, (Revised).
Fashola said the surety should be gainfully employed with an evidence of two years’ tax payment to the Lagos State Government (LASG).
The chief magistrate also directed the prosecutor to verify the address of the surety.
He adjourned the case until Feb. 13, for mention.
