A 54-year-old community leader, Peter Igboeli, was on Friday brought before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly punching and using a pestle to hit his wife.

The accused is facing a two-count charge of assault and threat to life.

He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Kehinde Omisakin, told the court that the accused committed the offences sometime in April 2013 and in June 2017, at Trade Fair Complex, Alaba, in Lagos.

She said that the accused assaulted his wife, Anthonia Igboeli, by punching her in the face and using a pestle to hit her, breaking two of her fingers.

Omisakin said that the accused had also threatened to burn down the shop of the complainant.

The offences contravened Sections 56(1) and 172 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr A.T. Elias, granted the accused bail based on self recognisance and adjourned further hearing until Aug. 7.
