A 28-year-old Uber driver Sunday Omale was on Tuesday, August 14, arraigned before Magistrate E. Kubeinje of Ogudu magistrates’ court in Lagos for allegedly refusing to pay an ashawo after making love to her.
Omale, who resides at Alhaja Elesin street, Ogudu, is facing assault causing bodily harm after having three rounds of sex with one Precious Mustapha. The accused was alleged to have refused paying her N6,000, being her service charge.
According to NAN, the prosecutor who was identified as Lucky Ihiehie, told the court that the accused committed the offence on Sunday, July 29, at Ogudu area of the state.
Ihiehie said Omale allegedly assaulted the complainant after having canal knowledge of her and immediately reported the case to the police.
It was further reported that the prosecutor said that the complainant had met Omale at African Shrine, Ikeja, where she charged him N6,000 after making love to her three times before dawn.
He added that an argument ensued between them as Omale claimed that he did not have cash on him and suggested the option of using his ATM card to withdraw money to pay her. Omale reportedly drove Mustapha round Ikeja and Ogudu axis without stopping at any of the banks where he could have used his ATM card.
Ihiehie also disclosed that Omale also deceived the complainant by driving her to his friend’s house under the pretext of collecting money from him to pay her.
He said: “Unfortunately, the accused’s friend chased him out of his compound. When it became clear to the accused that there was no place where he could get money, he used an object to hit Precious Mustapha on the head and started beating her.”
However, Omale who was not represented by any counsel, pleaded not guilty to the offence. He was later granted bail N50,000 with two sureties who must have evidence of tax payment for two years as the case was adjourned till September 25.
