Dog Faces Trial For Biting Bank Worker’s Penis

The police in Lagos State, southwest Nigeria, have arrested and charged a dog with biting a bank worker’s penis at  Idowu Anisere Street, off Governor’s Road in Ikotun, Lagos.

The police also charged the owner of the dog, Adebowale Gabriel, 31, before Mrs M.B. Folami at Ejigbo Magistrate’s Court Lagos.

The dog was specifically charged with assault, while Gabriel was charged with negligence under the Criminal Code.

The arrest of the dog and Gabriel followed a complaint by the victim, Mr. Simon Anwam, to the police in Ikotun division that when he was walking on the street, the dog pounced on him and inflicted deep injury on his penis.

Narrating what happened, Anwam who hails from Akwa Ibom State, southsouth Nigeria, said when he was returning home from work and he had almost reached his house, he met Gabriel on the way holding his dog with chain.

He said he was surprised when the dog jumped on him and bit his penis before he could be rescued from it.

Anwam narrated that when he discovered that his trousers was stained with blood, he quickly rushed home to check his penis and discovered that he had been severely  injured.

He complained that after the incident, he could not urinate easily.  He explained that when he attempted to urinate, blood flowed from his penis and he had to urinate with the aid of a pipe.

Anwam said when he went to a private hospital for treatment he was referred to the General Hospital on Lagos Island.

Following the incident, the police in Ikotun division arrested the dog Gabriel.

Confirming the incident, Gabriel said he was surprised the way his dog attacked Anwam.

He said he was holding the dog with chain when the dog suddenly attacked the bank worker who was passing by.

Gabriel said he had pleaded with Anwam and his wife about the incident and he has also offered to pay for his medical treatment before the police charged him to court.

When the dog and Gabriel were about to be arraigned, their plea was not taken.

The prosecutor, Mr Nicholas Atumonye, told the court that the parties involved in the matter wanted to settle out of court.

He told the court that the complainant had written a letter of withdrawal.

  1. D dog must be tormented by evil spirit by observing d position of penis in d trouser,it needs deliverance if it wl not bite pastor!

  2. @ Emmanuel thank u jare no mind femi usa , na so when them make mistake reach usa them go think say them don reach heaven and those when them leave for naija na animals. Pple like him are what white people use for experiment bcos of their mumu way of thinking and very easy to brain wash them. We call them modern day slaves.

  3. Oga USA your problem pass the commentators own. Does it mean you have taken the comments about dog eating as the cause of the incident seriously?

    E be like say no three jobs you day do for there, so you nor know the difference between joke and seriousness.

  4. Hear Nigerians talking! Do you have to eat dog before you get bit? You guys are just lost in a deluge of ignorance to be thinking like this. An Improperly trained dog can act in any form and manner if you don’t know. The banker was just unlucky to be bitten by an untrained dog, simple! Not that he eats too much dog meat – perverts!

  6. @Omo Eko, I feel you. Even if they are settling out of court, the dog should be killed otherwise it will do more harm next time.

  7. That dog should have been destroyed immediately as it has developed a taste for human blood and the owner banned from keeping dogs for a period of time.

  8. The man must have been eating a lot of dog meat for the dog to attack his manhood. Dog eater be warned, now dogs have learnt that the best form of defence is attack.

  9. I will help the man by treating,let man contact me on my number 08062910102 I’m waitting, I’m not joking

    • Paul, you need to eat some Dog meat i supposed, because i hear say Dog meat dey cure malaria.

      So that this high fever wen dey make you talk like dis go commot for your bodi.

      Paul you get high fever

  10. Those who form the habit of eating dogs should be ready to face the wrath of dogs. It seems the man the dog bite may have eaten dogs before. That was the reason for the attack. We also need to be safety conscious are make sure that such issues may be seriously taken. Most domestic animals like dogs are not registered with the appropriate authority, and owners of dogs refuse to go to animal clinic and obtain anty-rabbis for their dogs

  11. This incident news is absolutely highlight 2 us wit obviously 2 u dat the dog does not ave noting 2 do wit this matter beause the dog is not a human being dat can ponder abt wat is happend,therefore the two parties must ave 2 understand themselves on this subject matter. I’m 4rm Akwa Ibom State indigenus Bt i base in Lagos State

  12. @Kolaq, maybe the dog smelled dog flesh on him because he is from Akwa Ibom as you said. The most important thing here is that the dog owner was negligent in handling an animal in his care and allowed it to inflict grievous bodily harm on an innocent person. What happens if the man is not able to use his penis again as a result of this unwarranted attack from this useless dog?
    Arraigning the dog with the owner showed how daft our police officers are most of the time. Can a dog defend itself in a court of law? The arraignment of the owner for what his dog did was enough or else, how do you take the plea of a dog?

  13. I wish him quick recovery. I hope he has not been eating dogs and so this one decided to retaliate!(just joking)
