Couple Assaulted For Buying Foodstuffs On Credit

Basirat Abdullahi, 30, and Yemi Ebisola, 25, were on Tuesday arraigned in an Okitipupa Magistrates’ Court, Ondo State, for allegedly beating a couple because of N10,000 foodstuffs debt.

The prosecutor, Insp. Zedekiah Orogbemi, told the court that the defendants on April 25 around 6:00 p.m. at No. 4, Bamidele St., Igbodigo, Okitipupa, unlawfully assaulted their debtors by beating them mercilessly.

Orogbemi said that the suspects, who came to collect the debt owed by the couple, Samuel Fafeyiwa and Bola Fafeyiwa, pushed Bola down from a staircase and she sustained various degrees of injuries.

The suspects, however, pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge of assault and felony levelled against them.

The Magistrate, Mr Banji Ayeomoni, granted them bail in the sum N50,000 each and two sureties each in like sum, and adjourned the case to May 22nd for further hearing.
