Vincent Chikeluba, 34, was charged with attempting to strangle his mother, Mrs Chinwe Chikeluba, at an Ojo Magistrates’ Court in Lagos yesterday.
The defendant pled not guilty to the three-count accusation of assault, theft, and creating a breach of the peace before Magistrate D. S. Odukoya. Dr. Simon Uche, the prosecutor, told the court that the defendant committed the crimes in February.
Vincent, according to Uche, allegedly took N150,000 worth of his mother’s property.
The defendant also allegedly assaulted his mother by holding her throat with the intent to choke her, according to the prosecutor.
The prosecution added, “He also created a breach of peace by chasing his mother away from her home.”
