The complainant, Principal Station Master, Adedoyin Idowu, was reportedly checking tickets at the terminus gate when Suleiman Waheed and his wife, Doyin, allegedly presented expired tickets.

Idowu reportedly instructed them to obtain a valid ticket, but they allegedly refused and attacked the PSM with blows.

In the process, the complainant allegedly sustained serious injury on his mouth and lost a wristwatch worth N2,500. Waheed was arraigned before an Ebute Meta Magistrates’ Court on one count of assault.

His charge read, “That you, Suleiman Waheed, on September 12, 2015, at about 6.15pm at Iddo Terminus Railway Compound, in the Lagos State Magisterial district, did unlawfully assault one Adedoyin Idowu, a railway worker, which caused him bodily harm and thereby committed an offence punishable and contrary under Section 171 of criminal law of Lagos State of Nigeria 2011.”

The defendant pleaded not guilty.



  1. Hmm decorum lacking!! Could have been an easy case with public cameras. Even if you disagree there’s no room for assaulting anybody. Chai

  2. I just hope this guy will get a deserve punishment. Also government as to do something about entrance into the train station cz every thing must be in order.

  3. In Europe this fist boxer will end up in jail if found guilty. Already, he would be fined for presenting expired ticket and also for not buying ticket. Anyway, its a lawless country so everything goes as he was not pleaded guilty already. Even rapists are not guilty.

  4. Government boxer, omo Jesu. So many talented boxers and fighters in naija that should be showcasing their skills at the UFC or international boxing scene.
