Man on trial for biting off driver’s ear

 


A 35-year-old man is standing before a Magistrates’ Court in Kano on a charge of causing grievous hurt after allegedly biting off a driver’s ear.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Sani Kura, told the court on Wednesday that Ikechukwu Ogbonna committed the offence on July 10.

Kura said that one Cletus Nweke, a driver in charge of a luxury bus, reported the case to the Sabon Gari Police Division, Kano.

He said that Ogbonna at about 10:00 a.m. caused the complainant, Nweke, grievous hurt by biting off a portion of his ear.




“This resulted from a misunderstanding the accused had with the driver over the loading of his bus,’’ Kura said.

The prosecutor said that the offence was contrary to Section 247 of the penal code.

The accused pleaded not guilty when the charge was read to him.

The Senior Magistrate, Mr Hanif Chiroma, granted the accused N200, 000 in bail with two reliable sureties.

Chiroma said that one of the sureties must be a community leader and the second should be a businessman in Kano.

He adjourned the case to Aug. 11.
