The suspect was granted bail by the Ibadan court.
The police on Friday arraigned a 32-year-old man, Ganiu Adeleke, before an Ibadan Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly biting off the lower part of his neighbour’s ear.
The prosecutor, Foluke Adedosu, said the accused in the company of another person now at large, committed the crime on April 26 at about 10 p.m. at Ashaka area of Ibadan.
Ms. Adedosu alleged that the suspect committed the crime with intent to leave an indelible mark on his victim, Aminat Otunkoyka.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge of conspiracy and assault.
His lawyer, Tope Olayinka, thereafter applied to the court for bail on liberal terms.
Chief Magistrate Adams Adeshina granted the accused bail in the sum of N20,000 with two reliable sureties in like sum.
He subsequently, adjourned the matter to June 18 for further hearing.
