A 35-year-old lawyer, Aina Odetayo, who allegedly assaulted her 12-year-old nephew with a hot knife over N500 theft, on Thursday, appeared before an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Odetayo, who resides at Agege, Lagos State, is facing trial on three counts bordering on assault and inflicting bodily injury.

The prosecutor, Inspector Michael Unah, told the court that the defendant committed the alleged offences on November 14, on Green Hill Estate, Agege, Lagos.

He said the defendant injured the minor on the back with a knife, adding that she infringed on his right.

According to the prosecutor, the defendant, after inflicting injuries on the minor, prevented him from being treated.

He said the offences contravened sections 10,12, and 13 of the Child Rights Law of Lagos State 2019.

Magistrate Azeez Alogba granted the defendant bail on self-recognisance and ordered her to produce her call to bar certificate.

The magistrate adjourned the case till November 30 for mention.
