Joy Okafor, 23, publicly stripped her friend, Ruth Genesis, over the latter’s inability to pay back the N5,000 she borrowed from her, Police prosecutor says. The investigating officer from Ikotun Police Station told a magistrate court in Ejigbo, both in Lagos, how Okafor assaulted her friend at a public function over the matter. When she could not recover the debt, Okafor took off Genesis clothes and shoes and left her in a ‘birthday suit’. Okafor was later arrested by the Police and currently facing a two-count assault charge, including breach of public peace.
Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. M.B. Folami, granted Okafor bail for N10, 000 and a surety in the like sum, after she pleaded non-guilty.
The matter was adjourned to allow for an out-0f-court settlement.
