A lady has been arrested in Lagos state for inviting thugs to her birthday party. The lady was arrested for alleged conspiracy and malicious damage of two vehicles.
The lady, Zainab Olatunji, celebrated her birthday in the Papa Ashafa, Agege area of Lagos State on June 3, 2018.
Some thugs, who were allegedly invited by the 21-year-old celebrant, were said to have smoked Indian hemp freely, as they wielded different kinds of weapons during the celebration.
The party was midway when there was a disagreement among the guests, which reportedly degenerated into a fight.
The affray was said to have led to the damage of the windscreen of a Toyota Sienna, with number plate, LSR 260 CK, and a Toyota Rav 4 with number plate, KJA229HQ, owned by residents in the area.
Olatunji, who was arrested for the damage after the hoodlums fled, was arraigned on Monday before an Ogba Magistrate’s Court.
One of the affected car owners, Sulaiman Fajumobi, said the party was attended by over 50 guests, adding that most of them drank to stupor. He said;
“When they had their disagreement, they started threatening passersby with machetes as they burst out into the street to continue their fight. We all stayed indoors to keep safe.
“After they left and the dust settled, I came out of my house only to discover that the windscreen of my car had been shattered by the hoodlums,”
