LAGOS police on Monday arraigned Hassan Nurudeen, 20 and Hussien Nurudeen, 20, at a Badagry Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly assaulting two staff members of Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC).

The defendants, twin brothers, whose addresses are unknown, are on trial for assault, malicious damage and attack charges, but have pleaded not guilty.

The defendants were arrested on November 27 at 1.35 p.m. in Badagry, Lagos, according to prosecutor ASP Clement Okuoimose.

Okuoimose alleges that the defendants allegedly assaulted and injured Lamidi Akeem, a staff member of EKEDC, using stone and stick to inflict injury on his left eye.

“The twins allegedly damaged one Samsung Galaxy A41 phone valued at N153, 000 belonging to one Enemwo Clement, a staff of EKEDC. The defendants also assaulted the two staff of EKEDC,” he said.

The prosecutor said the offences contravened Sections 173, 339 and 172 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The Chief Magistrate, Fadaunsi Adefioye, granted bail to the defendants in the amount of N200,000 each with two sureties, and adjourned the case until January 8 for mention.
