A 40-year-old driver, Felix Ibe, was on Tuesday, August 11, arraigned in a Wuse Zone Six Chief Magistrates Court sitting in Abuja, for allegedly assaulting and biting an official of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).

 

Ibe, who resides opposite St. Matthew Catholic Church, Karmo, Abuja, was charged with two counts of assault and causing grievous hurt to the FRSC official 

 

The Prosecution Counsel, ASP Peter Ejike, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on Aug. 5, on the Herbert Macaulay Way, Wuse Zone 5, Abuja.

Ejike alleged that the defendant attacked James Owocho, attached to FRSC R-S- 71 Federal Sector Police Station while performing his duty with his team.

 

He said Owocho, apprehended the defendant on a traffic offence.

 

The prosecutor said while the defendant was asked to drive to the FRSC office, he drove the complainant to an unknown destination and fought him and bit him on the arm.

 

According to him, the offence contravened the provisions of sections 265 and 242 of the Penal Code Law.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty.

 

The Magistrate, Abdulmajid Oniyangi, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N500,000, with one surety in like sum.
