A man who, in a fit of anger, violently punched a woman on the street has gotten much more than he bargained for afterwards.
Olapade Alden, a 34-year-old man, has been arraigned in court.
The man was on Thursday brought before an Osogbo Magistrates’ Court for allegedly assaulting a woman by giving her violent blows.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the accused, whose address was not provided, is facing a charge of assault.
The Prosecutor, Sgt. Rasak Olayiwola, told the court that the accused committed the offence on June 27 at about 2pm at EledamAsun Street, Ilesa Motor Park, Osogbo.
Olaiwola said the accused dealt several blows on a woman, Akeem Faisat and inflicted injuries on her in the process.
He said there was a disagreement between them.
The offence contravened Section 351 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun, 2003.
The accused, who had no legal representation, pleaded not guilty.
The Magistrate, Mrs Olubukola Olowolagba, granted the accused bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in the like sum.
