He said the accused assaulted one Prof. Joseph Fawole, by holding firmly to his neck in an attempt to kill him and also inflicting injuries on him.
The prosecutor said it took the relentless efforts of passers-by to calm the situation, before the arrival of the Police at the scene.

He said that the situation almost led to a breach of public peace as the accused conducted herself in a manner to cause mayhem, where the incident took place.

Counsel to the accused, Mr Olufunmilayo Adejuwon, prayed the court to grant his client bail in the most liberal terms.
The Magistrate, Mr Olusola Aluko, granted the accused person bail in the sum of N50,000 and two sureties in like sum.

Aluko said the sureties must reside within the court’s jurisdiction, with evidence of tax payment and two passport-sized photographs attached to an affidavit of means.
The case was adjourned to Oct. 7, for hearing.

    Prof why you provoke your friend for main road na? Now the world don come hear what was meant to be a two person private conversation. I know you are a gentleman and a polished man hence your not raising your hand toa lady and I commend you for it but, being a professor you are a writer and do have the words to sweet talk and diffuse the tension without subjecting the public to a free show of the fracas between the two of you which I presume almost caused the breach of public peace referred to in this charge.
    Meanwhile, since you are the party with prestigious title of “prof”, go remove the case from court as you stand to lose more from this scandal than your friend. To avoid no be to fear so allow common sense rule and all the best to you !!!
