The Lagos State police yesterday arraigned a 48-year-old man, Samuel Subair, who allegedly killed a 70-year-old man in a motorcycle accident.
Subair was charged before an Ikeja magistrate court, Lagos, with ‘‘recklessly riding his motorcycle in a manner that caused the death of the pedestrian’’, whose name was not given.
The police prosecutor, Sergeant Unah Mike, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on January 23, 2020 at about 10.05 pm at Iyana Ipaja, along the Lagos-Abeokuta expressway, while riding his TVS motorcycle registration number AGL 468 QH. Subair pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge levelled against him.
The chief magistrate, Mr A. A. Fashola, admitted him to bail of N250,000, with a surety, and adjourned the case till February 24, 2020.
