A 21-year-old man, Samuel Wills, suspected to be a member of a cult, was yesterday brought before a Yaba Magistrates’ Court for allegedly stabbing a hotel manager in the head with a broken bottle.
Wills, whose address was not provided, is facing a four-count charge of conspiracy, cultism, assault and stealing. He pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutor Godwin Oriabure said the accused committed the offences with others at large on December 21 at 11:30pm at Ben Jack Hotel in Ifako-Ijaiye, Lagos.
He alleged that the accused and his friends beat up the complainant, Mr. Agwu Okike, because of disagreement over the payment of their bill.
