The police on Tuesday, arraigned two teachers, Peter Anyakorah, 40 and Samuel Ekanem, 40, before an Ikeja Chief Magistrate Court, for allegedly beating a 10-year-old pupil.
The Police Prosecutor, Victor Eruada, told the court that the defendants committed the offences on November 19, 2020 about 11.00am, at St. Anthony International School in Ijaye, Lagos State.
Eruada said the defendants beat the boy, Timileyin Adeyemi, with a stick all over his body, which caused him injuries.
He said the offences contravened the provisions of sections 411 and 173 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
The duo are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and assault.
They, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The Chief Magistrate, M. O Tanimola, granted the defendants N100,000 bail each, with two sureties in like sum.
Tanimola adjourned the case until January 28, for further mention.
