Man, 33, docked for head-butting friend



The police on Tuesday docked a 33-year-old businessman, Emeka Jude, at a Kabusa Grade I Area Court, Abuja, over alleged mischief and causing hurt.
Emeka, who resides at Kabusa village, was alleged to have gravely injured one Vitus Ndubuisi, also of Kabusa village.
The Prosecutor, Mahmud Lawal, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on April 4, in a garden owned by him.
Lawal said that Ndubuisi reported the matter at the Kabusa Police Station.
He said the complainant reported that Emeka invited him over to his garden for Easter celebrations and that in the course of the celebration Emeka asked the complainant some questions which he refused to answer.
Lawal then alleged that Emeka got angry by the refusal of the complainant and then head-butted and injured him.
The prosecutor noted that the complainant sustained injuries on his left eye and mouth, as a result of the head-butt.
Lawal said the offence contravened Sections 240 and 326 of the Penal Code.
Emeka, however, pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge.
The Judge, Aliyu Kagarko, ordered the defendant to be remanded in Keffi Prison pending the hearing of bail application.
Kagarko adjourned the case until July 18 for hearing of the bail application.
