According to the police prosecutor, Cpl. Pascal Njoku, the accused bit Hauwa Musa on the right her breast and detached the nipple, which has left the victim in severe pains. He disclosed that the offence contravened Section 241 of the Penal Code.
Uche pleaded not guilty and her counsel, Mr Michael Ejeh, applied for her to be bailed.
Magistrate Christopher Oba told parties to settled the case amicably, stressing that “Nobody benefits from trouble.’’
“I will advise that both parties in this matter should sit down and explore the possibility of resolving this matter,’’ he said.
He, therefore, granted bail to the accused in the sum of N50,000, about $330 and a surety in the like sum.
“The surety must have a reasonable means of livelihood and a traceable address within the jurisdiction of this court,’’ he ruled.
The magistrate adjourned the case to 21 November for hearing, if they fail to resolve the issue.
