Two lovers, Godwin Agu, 35, and Amaka Njoku, 30, have landed in trouble after they engaged in public fighting over sex fee in a hotel in Ajegunle, Lagos State, southwest Nigeria.
They were charged before an Apapa Magistrate's court and remanded in prison custody at Kirikiri, Lagos.
They are facing charge of conduct that breached public peace for fighting in the hotel.
The lovers had ealier agreed to have short time sex for a fee of N500 and went to a popular hotel in Ajegunle, Lagos.
It was gathered that after they checked into a room, Amaka, who had earlier agreed to collect N500 suddenly changed her mind after Agu spent a longer time during the sex romp. Amaka reportedly told Agu that since he had stayed too long with her in the room he had to pay additional N500. Agu agreed and after he finished, he refused to add more money, insisting he only had a round of sex as they agreed.
This caused serious aurgment that resulted in fighting between the lovers in the hotel. The fighting disrupted the activities in the hotel that evening before the hotel management intervened. The management contacted the police who arrested them and charged them to court for engaging in a public fight.
According to Agu, "I pleaded with Amaka before she agreed on the price and at the middle of the action, she wanted to discontinue, insisting that I must add more money."
Amaka said he promised to complete the money when she complained that he had stayed too long. When they were arraigned in court, they pleaded not guilty.
The presiding Magistrate, Mr. P. A. Adekomaya granted them bail in the sum of N10,000 with one surety in like sum. Also, the defendants were asked to bring a letter from a community leader to show they will be of good conduct in future. They were, however, remanded in prison custody pending when they perfect their bail conditions.
The matter was adjourned till 12 April, 2013.
