A Lagos landlord was beaten to a coma by one Sunday Ugah for preventing him from committing murder.
The 29-year-old Ugah was on Tuesday brought before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court.
Ugah, who is unemployed and resides at Iju-Ifako area of Lagos, is facing charges of breach of the peace, willful damage to property and assault.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Yomi Egunjobi told the court that the accused committed the offences on Sept.7 at Agege, a Lagos suburb.
He said the accused assaulted a landlord, Mr. Musiliu Lawal, by tearing his clothes and beating him until he became unconscious.
Egunjobi said the complainant was beaten because he intervened when the accused wanted to kill his sister.
He said, “The accused went to his elder sister’s shop to ask for N2,000 but his sister refused; he descended on her and dealt her several blows on the face and body.
“When he was not satisfied with the beating, he picked a broken bottle threatening to stab her to death if the money was not given to him.
“The sister took to her heels and ran into the complainant’s house for her dear life, but the accused pursued her.
“When the complainant saw the accused was running towards his building with a bottle, he locked the entrance door to prevent him from entering.
“When the accused got to the door and discovered that it was locked, he damaged the door and broke into the house but could not find his sister.
“He approached the complainant, tore his clothes to pieces and beat him up until the complainant was unconscious.”
The offences contravened Sections 166, 171 and 348 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
Section 171 and 348 provide a three-year imprisonment for offenders.
The accused pleaded innocence of the offences and was granted bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum.
The Magistrate, Mrs M.O. Oshibajo, adjourned the case to Nov. 29 for mention
