Police drag 2 men to court for public fighting with broken bottles
Two middle-aged men, who allegedly engaged in public fighting, were on Thursday brought before a Badagry Magistrates’ Court.
The defendants, Sunday Kuton, 29, and Nnamdi Mini, 26; are facing one-count charge of public fighting.
The Prosecutor, ASP. Akpan Nkem, told the court that the defendants committed the offence on Jan. 29 at about 1:30p.m, at Agbalata International Market, Coconut Market, in Badagry, Lagos.
