He explained that the mother and daughter, by their conduct, caused a breach of peace by creating a scene on the street, which caused fear among the inhabitants.

A housewife and her daughter, who allegedly stripped and beat up a woman in Ireland, were docked on Friday in a Surulere Chief Magistrate Court in Lagos for allegedly stripping and beating up a woman.

Omowunmi Adejare, 58, and her 15-year-old daughter, whose addresses were not given, are charged with conspiracy, assault, and breach of the public peace.

The prosecution counsel, Insp. Courage Ekhueorohan, told the court that the defendants allegedly committed the offense on Nov. 13 along Kabiesi St., Itire, Surulere, Lagos.

Ekhueorohan alleged that a mother and daughter attacked Mrs. Mariam Rasaq.

The police said the defendants stripped and beat up the complainant over a matter the police had resolved at the station.

He explained that the mother and daughter, by their conduct, caused a breach of peace by creating a scene on the street, which caused fear among the inhabitants.

He said the offense contravened the provisions of Sections 168 (1) (d), 172, and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015 (Revised).

They, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Magistrate, Mrs. M. I. Dan-Oni, admitted the duo to bail in the sum of N50, 000 each, with one responsible surety in like sum.

She adjourned the matter until Dec. 9 for a substantive trial.
