|Rita and Phillips|
According to P.M Express, Phillip further revealed in public that he and some police officers had slept with her before she moved into his house with her four children at Shobowale Street, Modina Road, Egan in the outskirts of Lagos where they reside.
It was gathered that the woman’s husband simply known as Chizoba, became angry and asked the wife to prove her innocence but she rather went to the police at Igando Division and reported the matter.
Phillip was later arrested and charged before Ejigbo Magistrates court for conduct likely to cause breach of public peace and threat to life.
It was learnt further that the suspect had been having constant quarrels with Chizoba who was a bus driver plying Lagos Island. Phillip and Chizoba started having problems when his wife moved into the compound.
According to the suspect, he was forced to say those things because the family provoked him, continued to abuse and threaten his own family, adding that he knew the husband some years ago before the wife came with her four children and started living with him.
The Edo State-born Phillip said that Chizoba did not tell him that he was married before when they were friends before the woman arrived with the children.
At the police station, he admitted that he said those offensive words when they were having exchange of words in the compound and will not apologise to them, and when he was charged to court on Wednesday, he pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor, Supol Kenneth Asibor did not object to his bail condition, but asked court to grant him bail that will enable him to come to face trial in the interest of justice. While the presiding Magistrate, Mrs. Jadesola Ajayi, granted Eshogaya bail in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties in like sum.
Eshogaya was remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect his bail condition, as the matter was adjourned till 11 December, 2017.
