Â A 28-year-old lady, Miss Folasade Babatunde, was, on Tuesday, arraigned before an Akure magistrateâ€™s court for assault and conduct likely to cause breach of peace after allegedly pouring faeces on the body of her rival.
She, however, pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge preferred against her by the state police command.
The accused had, last week, entered the banking hall of First Bank in Alagbaka, Akure and poured faeces on her rival, Miss Agnes Olaseinde, who worked as a cashier in the bank.
She was said to have entered the Banking Hall with a polythene bag and, on getting to the front of the cashier, removed and emptied the content on her rival.
A source in the bank, who narrated how the incident occurred,said Miss Babatunde, who came to Akure from Owo town, went straight to the cashier, Miss Olasehinde, and accused her of snatching her husband in the presence of other bank workers and customers in the banking hall.
The lady immediately opened the polythene bag and before the security guards could stop her, poured the entire content with the offensive odour, on Olasehinde who was attending to customers.
The charge preferred against her by the police prosecutor, Mr Ayodele Atandeyi, read: â€œThat you Babatunde Folasade (F) on the 24 th day of February at about 12:30p.m at First Bank Alagbaka Branch Akure in Akure Magisterial district did conduct yourself in a manner likely to cause breach of peace by bring to the banking hall, a can containing faeces and thereby commit offence punishable under section 249(d) of the criminal code cap 37 vol 1, laws of Ondo State of Nigeria, 2006.â€
