He said Ms Emole sustained injuries on her legs as a result of the beating, adding that she was still receiving treatment in the hospital.

The prosecution counsel said the offence contravened the provisions of Section 265 of the Penal Code.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty.

The judge, Yahaya Sheshi, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N500,000 with one surety resident within the court’s jurisdiction.

Mr Sheshi said the surety must provide two recent passport photographs, driver’s licence or national identity card and a printout of Bank Verification Number (BVN).

The judge said he granted the defendant bail for his diligence in responding to the police since the inception of the matter in October.

He adjourned the case until February 8 for hearing.
