The offences contravened sections 11(a) (b) of the Protection Against Domestic Violence Law, 2007 and the 176 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
While 11(a) (b) prescribes five years imprisonment with or an option of N100,000 for any one found guilty of the charge, Section 176 stipulates three-year imprisonment for offenders .
The accused, who pleaded guilty to the charge of assault,however, said he was not guilty to the charge of domestic violence.
Adebiosu, told the court that he mistakenly bit off his wife’s nose in anger.
The accused told the court that on the day in question, he got home and met his children crying and when he asked of the whereabouts of their mother, he was told she was at a party two houses away.
“I met my wife finishing off her fourth bottle of Stout in the midst of men; I had to force her home and during the struggle, I mistakenly bit her nose.
“I do the best I can to take of our family, but my wife does not give me the respect that I deserve as her husband.”
The Chief Magistrate, Mrs. Kikelomo Ayeye, however, remanded the accused at Ikoyi prison.
Ayeye adjourned the case until February 12 for further hearing
