A couple, Ahgwekure and Brevery Solomon, on Friday, appeared in a Life Camp Magistrates’ Court for allegedly assaulting their landlady, who did not refund their money.
The police charged the couple, who live in Pinatech Estate, Life Camp Abuja, with assault.
The Prosecution Counsel, ASP Peter Ejike, told the court that the complainant, Mary Michael, reported the matter at the Life Camp Police Station on Jan. 7.
Ejike alleged that on Jan. 6, the defendants went to the complainants’ house and assaulted her over non-refund of rent paid into the complainant’s bank account by the defendants.
