Lagos - A woman and her son, who allegedly assaulted their neighbour, one Folashade Akinola, by biting off part of her right ear, on Wednesday appeared before an Ikeja Senior Magistrates' Court, Lagos.

Bose Oladunjoye, 44, and Tobi Oladunjoye, 20, both residents of No. 45 Olota St., Abule Egba, Ikeja, are standing trial on a two-count charge of conspiracy and unlawful assault.

The Prosecutor, Insp. Uche Simon, told the court that the accused persons committed the offences on Jan. 12 at the same address.

"Akinola decided to confront Oladunjoye's daughter on the matter and when she got to their apartment she told the mother what her daughter had done.

"Oladunjoye and her son instead of listening to the complainant assaulted her by beating her up and biting off part of her ear.

"Akinola was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital by neighbours who were at the scene of the fight, "Simon stated.
