The Police on Thursday in Lagos arraigned four people who allegedly engaged in public fight and causing breach of peace.

They, however, pleaded not guilty.

The prosecutor, SP Josephine Ikhayere, told the court that the defendants engaged in public fight on Aug. 23 at No. 341, Agege Motor Road, Oshodi, Lagos State.

The alleged offences contravene Sections 54 and 168(d) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The Magistrate, Mr Lateef Owolabi, admitted the defendants to bail in the sum of N100,000 each.

Owolabi also ordered that each of the defendants should produce two sureties who must be gainfully employed and provide evidence of three years’ tax payment to Lagos State Government.

He adjourned the case until Sept. 20 for mention.
