Two men, Peter Anyakorah, 40 and Samuel Ekanem, 40, on Tuesday were arraigned at an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court, for allegedly beating a 10-year-old pupil.

The Prosecutor, ASP Victor Eruada, told the court that the defendants committed the offences on Nov. 19, 2020 about 11.00 a.m., at St. Anthony International School in Ijaye, Lagos State.

Eruada said the defendants beat the boy, Timileyin Adeyemi, with a stick all over his body, which caused him injuries.

The duo are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and assault.

They, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Section 173 stipulates a three-year jail term for offenders.‎

The Chief Magistrate, M. O Tanimola, in ruling granted the defendants N100,000 bail each, with two sureties in like sum.

Tanimola adjourned the case until Jan. 28, for further mention.
