Two ladies were arrested by the police in Lagos for conducting themselves in a disgraceful manner by engaging in a messy public brawl. The women identified as Ozioma Ezekwe, 24 and Franca Ogochukwu, 26, were said to have fought and tore their clothes as a result of bitter rivalry over an undisclosed matter.
The incident happened at Oyebede Street in Ejigbo Lagos where they engaged in the messy fight that attracted other neighbours.
The cause of the fight was not disclosed by the police and the two women also seemed not willing to disclose what led to the brawl.
However, it was learnt that they had a disagreement which led to exchange of hot words before it degenerated into a fight. They fought publicly before the police arrested them and detained them at the Ejigbo Police Division.
It was gathered that the female DPO frowned at their conduct and directed that the two women be charged to court for affray. The investigating police officer then charged them before the Ejigbo Magistrates court.
They pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor, Inspector G. Simon, did not oppose their bail condition but asked the court for a short adjournment for hearing.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mr. L.K.J. Layeni, granted them bail in the sum of N50,000 with one surety in like sum.
They were remanded in prison custody pending when they will perfect their bail condition.
They matter was adjourned till 14th November, 2018.
According to their neighbours, the women have not really stated what the cause of the fight between them was as they were said to have remained silent over the real issue. It appeared it was what only both of them knew about and were reluctant to reveal even at the police station which angered the police.
Their neighbours believed that they might have done an odd together and were not ready to reveal as it might implicate both of them.
