A 33- year- old woman Olawunmi Oyebode has been arrested and remanded in prison custody at Kirikiri for assault . This happened one week to her wedding in Lagos State , western Nigeria.
Her journey to prison started after she was arraigned before a Magistrates ’ Court sitting in Isolo for the alleged offence.
Oyebode who had concluded plans for her wedding allegedly slapped her neighbour, Anthony Onyeka for undisclosed reason . The incident happened at 51, Ijikoyejo street , Ijeshatedo, Lagos where they reside .
After the alleged assault, Onyeka went to Ijeshatedo police division and reported Oyebode and she was arrested and taken to the station.
P. M. NEWS gathered that every attempt by the police to settle the rift failed as Oyebode refused to apologise to Onyeka as advised. Thereafter the police charged Oyebode to court with assault. When she was arraigned, she pleaded not guilty.
The presiding Magistrate, Mrs Joy Ugbomoiko granted her bail in the sum of N20 ,000 with one surety. She was remanded in prison custody pending when her bail will be perfected.
While she was taken to prison custody, Oyebode remembered her wedding date and broke down in tears.
