A 32-year-old woman, Rose Stephen, was arraigned on Wednesday before a chief magistrates’ court in Kaduna for biting off a man’s finger during a brawl.

The defendant, who resides in Barnawa, Kaduna, was arraigned on a two-count charge of assault and causing grievous harm.

The prosecutor, Chidi Leo, told the court that Francis Timothy, of the same address, reported the matter at the Barnawa Police Station on September 5.

Mr Leo alleged that the defendant had an argument with the complainant, and she assaulted him by biting off a finger on his right hand.

According to the prosecutor, the offences contravened the Kaduna State Penal Code.

When the charges were read, the defendant pleaded not guilty.

Magistrate Ibrahim Emmanuel consequently granted the defendant a N150,000 bail with a surety in like sum.

Mr Emmanuel said the surety should be gainfully employed and show evidence of two years of tax payment to the Kaduna government.

He, however, adjourned the case to September 30 for a hearing.
