A self-acclaimed businessman, Arinze Nnachi, has been dragged to a Magistrate Court in Lagos, for allegedly robbing a commercial sex worker popularly called 'ashawo', at a brothel located on Borno Way, Ebute-Meta.

The court presided over by E.O. Ogunkanmi, heard that the 35-year-old Nnachi had gone to the hotel and negotiated for a whole night of sex with the prostitute called Patience Sunday, and had agreed to pay her N5,500 (GHC115.11) for her services.

But in the morning, Nnachi reneged on the agreement and rather paid Sunday N2,000 (GHC41.86) instead and in the disagreement that ensued between them, he allegedly beat her up and to add to the humiliation, he stole her handset valued at N45,000 (GHC941.83).

When the charges of assault and stealing were read to him, Nnachi pleaded not guilty and was granted bail in the sum of N20,000 (GHC418.59) while the case was adjourned to a further date.
