A landlady, Obasuyi Abimbola, has been battered by her
female tenant, Mujidat Ibrahim, for allegedly barring her from selling a
narcotic substance suspected to be marijuana in her compound in Lagos State,
western Nigeria.
Following the assault, the suspect, Mujidat was arrested and
charged before Isolo Magistrates’ court with the alleged offence. The incident happened at 37, Adigun street, Itire where both
the landlady and tenant reside.
According to Abimbola, her trouble started after she got
information that Mujidat and her husband, Kaka were selling marijuana. She said with confirmation from other tenants, she moved in
and directed them to stop it forthwith and threatened to eject them and report
to the police.

According to her, that did not augur well with the husband
and wife who challenged her to mind her business.
She said that led to exchange of words and in the process
resulted in the suspects allegedly attacking her.
During the fight, Abimbola alleged that Mujidat’s husband
allegedly held her and his wife rained blows on her.
She said she was badly injured and bled profusely.
She was taken to a nearby hospital where she was treated
before being taken to the General Hospital.
The matter was reported to the police at Itire division and
Mujidat was arrested while her husband reportedly escaped.
At the station, Mujidat denied that they were selling
marijuana.
Her husband reportedly refused to show up at the station for
fear that he would be detained.
Mujidat was charged to court with assault occasioning bodily
harm under the Criminal Code.
She pleaded not guilty and the prosecutor, Inspector Abass
Abayomi, informed the court that the victim was seriously injured and was still
lying critically ill at the hospital.
The presiding Magistrate, Mrs. A. O. Adedayo granted Mujidat
bail in the sum of N20,000 with one surety who must show evidence of payment of
tax.
Mujidat was remanded in prison custody pending when she will
perfect her bail condition.
The matter was adjourned till 8 February, 2016.
