He also alleged that Idowu threatened violence by the word of mouth to the complainant.

Okunade said the offences contravened sections 249(d) and 86 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ekiti State 2012.

The prosecutor asked the court for adjournment to enable him study the case file and present his witnesses.
