A 56-year-old woman, Mrs Grace Osayande, has been docked before an Ogbeson Chief Magistrate Court in Benin on a four-count charge bothering on conspiracy, a threat to life, assault, and obstruct/resist arrest.

The Police Prosecutor, Inspector Charity Asemota, told the court that the accused committed the offences on May 13 at Odia street Off Eyaen quarters, Benin.

Chief Magistrate noted that the surety must be responsible. He then adjourned the case until June 8, for further hearing.
