A man, Iginovia Ikpowosa, has been arraigned before the Ebute Meta Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday for maltreating a child placed in his care.
The 30-year-old man was said to have denied the child, Patience Akpan, proper basic care therefore endangering her life. The court heard that Akpan had been under Ikpowosa’s care between February and July, 2016 and had lived at Ishibiri in the Ajangbadi area of Lagos State.
He pleaded not guilty to the charges. The magistrate, A.T. Idowu, adjourned the case to 26 October, 2016.
