Nicholas, who lives at No. 13, Akinyemi Street, Ajah, was arraigned on a two-count charge of assault and causing grievous harm.

The Prosecutor, Mr Austin Orji, told the court that the accused committed the offences on Oct. 5, at 10 a.m., at Akinyemi Compound, Ajah.

“They had been arguing over a stone which the complainant used to support her kiosk where she sells recharge cards.”

The prosecutor told the court that Nicholas had removed the stone to support her grinding stone and promised to return it.

“When she didn’t return it, the complainant angrily went to pick her stone, which got Nicholas angry, and a fight ensued,” he said.
