The Police in Akure, Tuesday, arraigned a 28-year-old woman, Folashade Babatunde before an Akure Senior Magistrate's Court for allegedly pouring faeces on a female banker.

The accused person who elected summary trial at the court pleaded not guilty to the two charges when they were read to her in English language.
But in her statement to the police, the accused, who gave her address as No. 47, Ekusi Street, Owo, admitted that she poured the faces on Olasehinde because she was going out with her husband.
