A member of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Ganiyu Ibrahim, who allegedly stabbed his colleague with a knife during a fight over proceeds from motor parks, was on Monday arraigned in Lagos.


Ibrahim, 32, was brought before a Tinubu Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, on a two-count charge of assault, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.


The Prosecutor, Insp. Philip Osijiale, told the court that the accused, on May 19 at about 9:30pm at NEPA Road, Ajah, Lagos, stabbed one Gbolahan Akinsemorin, who is also a member NURTW.


Osijiale said the accused stabbed Akinsemorin with a knife on his back and waist during a fight for supremacy and proceeds from motor parks.


He said the offences contravened Sections 170 and 171 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.


The accused, however, denied the charge and was granted N100,000 bail.

The Magistrate, Mrs. Memunat Folami, said the accused must provide one responsible surety and adjourned the case till July 4 for mention.
