An Ile-Ife Magistrates’ Court in Osun ordered that a woman, Nifemi Ajayi, who allegedly bit her neighbour on the scrotum, be remanded.

The police charged Ms Ajayi with assault.

The prosecution counsel, Sunday Osanyintuyi, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on August 24, around 8:00 p.m. at No 21, Oke-Soda, Ile-Ife.

Mr Osanyintuyi said that the defendant bit Olayera Boluwaji on his scrotum and his stomach.

He added that the offence contravened the provisions of Section 355 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun, 2002.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty.

The defence counsel, Philip Fasanmoye, made an oral bail application. He prayed the court to admit his client in the most liberal terms.

Magistrate Olusola Aluko ordered the defence counsel to file a written application for bail.

Meanwhile, Mr Aluko ordered the remand of the defendant in Ilesa correctional centre, and adjourned the matter until November 15 for bail consideration.
