Doctor in Lekki Might Face a 3-Year Jail Term After he Slapped a Nurse Working for him Across the Face

One Emmanuel Okolo has been accused of allegedly slapping one of his workers across the face and so the case was tendered before an Epe Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State.

Moses Oyekanmi, a Police Prosecutor, shared with the court that the accused committed the offence on Wednesday, at 02:00am at Awoyaya hospital in Ibeju-Lekki.
The police charged 35-year-old Okolo, who lives at Epe with assault.
Oyekanmi said Okolo argued with Dorcas Adeyara, who was a resident nurse in his hospital over the state of a patient’s room and during the course of the argument, he slapped her across her face.
“My Lord, the accused caused serious bodily injury to the complainant. He slapped her just because she worked for him. He should be punished for it,” he said.
The offence contravened section 172 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015. (Revised)
The offence of assault attracts three years’ jail term.
After he pleaded not guilty, Magistrate O.A. Fowowe-Erusiafe, admitted him to bail in the sum of N50, 000.
She ordered that the sureties must be gainfully employed with evidence of two years tax payment to the Lagos State Government.
Fowowe-Erusiafe adjourned the case until Aug. 19 for trial.
