An Osun State Magistrates Court sitting in Ile Ife, has granted bail to one Taiwo Orofin, for allegedly slapping a traffic warden.
Orofin was arraigned on two counts bordering on assault.
Addressing the court, the police prosecutor, Mr Sunday Osanyintuyi alleged that Orofin slapped one Inspector Ajiwe Samuel at his duty post.
According to Osanyintuyi, the defendant injured the policeman in his upper lip during the attack, adding that the offence contravened sections 355 and 356 of the Criminal Law of Osun State, 2002.
Orofin, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The defence counsel, Mr Olalekan Babatunde, urged the court to admit his client to bail with an assurance that Orofin would provide reliable sureties.
Ruling on the bail application, the magistrate, Muhibah Olatunji, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N200,000 and adjourned the case till June 13.
