A Surulere Chief Magistrates Court in Lagos on Wednesday, granted bail to a man who allegedly caused the death of his lover who drank sniper insecticide.
A 33-year-old resident of Monkey Village in the Maza-Maza area of Lagos, identified as Emeka Ajezu, who allegedly caused the death of his lover who drank sniper insecticide and died, has been set free after pleading not guilty to a charge of ‘causing death by negligence.’
According to a reporters, Chief Magistrate, Ipaye Nwachukwu, of the Surulere Magistrates’ Court sitting in Lagos on Wednesday, granted N300,000 bail to the accused and also ordered the him to produce two sureties in like sum.
It was gathered that the Prosecutor, Sgt. Anthonia Osayande, earlier told the court that Ajezu was dating 17-year-old Chisom Ekwere, and got her pregnant.
“But when she became pregnant for him, Ajezu refused to take responsibility for the pregnancy because he was planning to get married to another woman. Late Ekwere’s elder sister took her to the house of the accused and she started living with him while still pregnant,” he said.
The accused allegedly told the deceased girl that he was going to the village for his wedding ceremony with another woman, adding that the suicide note the deceased left behind indicated that she drank sniper insecticide because she was heartbroken by Ajezu’s behaviour.
The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Sections 227 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State 2011. The Court adjourned the case until Dec. 20 for mention.
