Ibrahim Lemo, 41, was remanded on Friday, April 14, after a Badagry Magistrates’ Court in Lagos ordered him to do so for touching a woman’s breast.
The court heard that Lemo beat up his victim, Zainab Babalola, when she demanded he stopped the unlawful act.
Chief Magistrate Fadahunsi Adefioye remanded Lemo after he pleaded guilty to a two count bordering on assault.
Adefioye ordered that the defendant should be remanded in Awhajigoh Correctional Centre, Badagry.
Earlier, the prosecutor, ASP. Clément Okuoimose, told the court that the defendant committed the offences on April 6 at 2.30 p.m. at Badagry Roundabout shopping complex, Badagry, Lagos.
Okuoimose said Lemo without lawful excuse pressed the breast of the complainant, Zainab Babalola.
After the complainant urged him not to touch her again, the defendant, according to him, hit her in the left eye and hurt her.
The prosecutor said the offences contravened Sections 134 and 170 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
