Ahmed, who resides at Igbechia community, Ikoga, Badagry, had pleaded not guilty to a count charge of breach of peace.


The prosecutor, SP. Akpan Ikem, had told the court that the accused committed the alleged offence sometimes in June at Igbochia area of Badagry.

Ikem said that the accused took his “sick cow from Avia area to Ogunbiyi Jacob Farm at Igbochia community, which led to the death of complainant’s three cows valued at N400,000.’’

The offence, he said, contravened Section 166 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Lazarus Hotepo, granted bail to the accused in the sum of N200, 000 with two sureties in like sum.

He said the sureties must reside within Badary magisterial district, adding that one must be a religious leader or community leader.
