A 23-year-old musician, Mayowa Akinbowale has been arrested and charged to the court for allegedly demanding the blood of a cow that was slaughtered at a wedding.
He was arraigned before a Magistrate Court sitting in the Abule Egba area of Lagos state on a three count charge of attempting to commit felony, causing a breach of peace and being in possession of charms.
According to the prosecutor, Inspector Rachael Williams, the accused committed the offence on April 11 on Shemboye Oladunni Street., Baruwa, Ipaja, Lagos State.
The request of the accused had been declined by the complainant, Mrs Morenike Shemboye who is the bride’s mother and she asked him to leave.
He then showed up again at the reception venue. When he was asked by the complainant what he was doing there, he couldn’t give a satisfactory answer and so he was arrested.
After his arrest, the police searched his house and found different charms.
The accused however pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Presiding over the matter, the magistrate, Mr Tajudeen Elias, remanded the accused in the Kirikiri Prison and the case was adjourned to April 30.
