A mild drama reportedly played out recently at Krystal Lounge Night Club, Wuse II in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja as a commercial sex worker, Blessing Olili, assaulted a man she mistook for her ‘run away’ customer.
The man, identified as Onuma Kalu who dragged Olili before a Grade 1 Area Court sitting in Karmo on Tuesday, said he had never set eyes on Olili until the incident.
Speaking before the presiding judge, Abubakar Sadiq, the prosecutor, A.Z. Dalhatu, said on June 25, 2016, the complainant, Mr. Onuma Kalu, reported at Utako police station that Ms. Olili assaulted him at Krystal Lounge Night Club, Wuse II.
Sadiq said, “Ms. Olili claimed that last year the complainant picked her at Arramus Night Club for a night stand at an agreed amount of N25, 000 but he ran without paying her.
“On the night of June 24, the accused mistook Kalu as her customer who jilted her last year.
“The girl assaulted him and demanded payment for the service she rendered him but he insisted he had never seen her before,” the prosecutor said, adding that the offence is contrary to sections 246 and 392 of the Penal Code.
Olili, a resident of Arusha Crescent Zone 1, Abuja, who was arraigned for alleged criminal assault and defamation of character, pleaded not guilty.
The presiding judge granted the accused bail in the sum of N50, 000.
Sadiq adjourned the case to July 14, 2016, for further hearing.
