A 79-year-old woman, Mrs Caroline Olowojebutu, on Monday dragged her son, Adeyemi Olowojebutu to an Ogudu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos, accusing him of assaulting her and threatening her life.
According to the Prosecutor, Sgt. Lucky Ihiehie, the complainant, residing at Plot 215A Ajao St., Ajao Estate, Lagos, told the police that her son was always intimidating and annoying her and making life unbearable for her.
Ihiehie said that the woman also accused the defendant (her stubborn son) of threatening to deal with her just because she cautioned him to stop beating his wife.
However, when the plea of the defendant was taken, he pleaded not guilty. Ihiehie told the court that the offence was committed on March 9 at about 7 p.m. at Plot 215A Ajao St., Ajao Estate.
The Magistrate, Mrs E. Kubeinje, granted the defendant bail in the sum N100,000 with two sureties, who must be his blood relatives. She adjourned the case until May 13 for mention.
