Tolu Akinsola, a 35-year-old engineer, was on Friday docked in an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly pouring bleach in her neighbour’s eye, Daily Post reports.
The police charged Akinsola, who resides at No. 16, Olorunisola Street, Mushin, Lagos with assault and breach of the peace.

The offence, she said, contravened the provisions of sections 171 and 168 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
NAN reports that Magistrate A.J. Odueke admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum.
He ordered that both sureties must reside within the court’s jurisdiction, be gainfully employed and have evidence of tax payment to Lagos State Government.
Odueke adjourned the case until December 12 for mention.
