Man stabs neighbour with broken bottle over loud music.
A 33-year-old man, John Ena, allegedly stabbed his neighbour with a broken bottle for playing loud music. Ena, a resident of No. 13, Palace Road, Alagbado, Lagos, is being tried for breach of the peace and assault at an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.
Kehinde Olatunde, the prosecutor said that the accused unlawfully assaulted his neighbour, one Miss Elizabeth Okpaku, by stabbing her with a broken bottle on her head.
The accused stabbed the complainant with a bottle on her head for playing loud music.
Kehinde Olatunde claimed that John Ena unlawfully entered the apartment of the complainant to stab and damage her property.
The accused forcefully entered the complainant’s room and ordered her to reduce the volume of her DVD player, claiming that it was too loud and was disturbing him in his room.
The complainant refused to comply, saying that the volume was not loud, so the accused forcefully stopped the music by throwing the DVD player outside and also damaged her generator set.
He also descended on her by beating and stabbing her with a bottle.
The accused pleaded innocent to the charges.
