A 25-year-old man, Olusola Simeon, is currently cooling his heels in the custody of Ilesa prison for beating and inflicting injuries on his girlfriend’s face after the latter made efforts to move to his place.
Simeone was convicted on the allegation of assault by an Osogbo Magistrate’s Court in Osun state on Tuesday.
Miss Fadahunsi Alaba, was said to have, at about 9:15pm on July 2, 2018, moved her belongings to Simeon’s house unnoticed before she met his wife and kids.
To her dismay, Alaba was said to have expressed anger and queried Simeon on the family he has, stressing that he did not tell her that he is married since the last six years they have been dating.
According to the prosecution, the convict was furious that Alaba visited his home without informing him, a development that led to a quarrel.
Meanwhile, Simeon, who was arraigned in court by the Police, pleaded guilty to the charge of assault.
The Prosecutor, Mr. Jafani Muslim, told the court that the convict battered Alaba at his place in Agowande Area, Osogbo.
He said Simeon committed an offence that contravened section 355 of the criminal Code Cap 34 Vol 11,. Laws of Osun State, 2003.
The Magistrate, Mrs Awodele Adedoyin, found Simeon guilty after a summary trial and ordered that he be remanded in Ilesha prison custody till August 3 that the court would pronounce judgement on the matter.
