John David, a 21-year-old man, who allegedly beat his neighbour to a pulp, was on Wednesday arraigned in an Apapa Magistrates’ Court, Lagos.

NAN reports that the accused, a resident of Kirikiri area of Apapa, Lagos, is standing trial on a charge of assault, to which he pleaded not guilty.

The police prosecutor, Sgt. Olusegun Kokoye, told the court that the accused committed the offence on Nov. 23, at their tenement building.

He alleged that the accused assaulted the complainant, David Orji, by biting him on the hand and beating him up.

Kokoye said the fight started as a result of an argument which ensued between the duo.

According to the prosecutor, the accused claimed that the complainant was abusing him without any reason.

Kokoye said that efforts made by other tenants to settle the dispute proved abortive.

He said that the complainant reported the case to the police and the accused was arrested.

The offence contravened Section 172 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Section 172 prescribes three years imprisonment for assault occasioning harm.

The Senior Magistrate, Mr M.A. Etti, granted the accused bail in the sum of N50, 000 with one surety in like sum.

He adjourned the case until Jan. 8, 2018.
