It was gathered that Lekan Adetona, 37, connived with others still at large to severely beat up the site worker when he refused to give them money.
The incident happened at a building site on Anobi Street, Alapere, Ketu. The incident was reported by the complainant on the same day.
The complainant, a welder, had on that day went to meet some of his friends at a site on Anobi Street, where they were to carry out some construction work.
On getting there, he didn’t meet them and as he turned to return to his shop, a group of three young men, led by the accused, attacked him.
They beat him to a pulp as they demanded money from him, thinking he was the site engineer.
Adetona and his Omo Onile boys were accused by the complainant of going about terrorising people over their property and trying to claim money for ridiculous reasons.
The convict was unlucky and was arrested by the police with the help of people around, who knew his whereabouts.
He was charged before an Ogudu Magistrate Court where the Magistrate, Sule Amzat, sentenced him to three months imprisonment.
