News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that a housewife, Mrs Omotayo Omolara, dragged her neighbour Mr Sylvester Amazu to court alleging criminal trespass on her property.
”The respondent is not in court to take his plea because we are exploring an out of court settlement.
“We herein pray for a long adjournment to harmonise all the issues raised for proper settlement,” Omo’ovivioriz told the court.
