An Upper Area Court in Makurdi, Benue State, on Thursday, sentenced a commercial sex worker, Dooshima Anems, to four years imprisonment for biting a customer’s tongue during sex.
The police had charged Anems with assault and causing grievous hurt.
The magistrate, Rose Iyorshe, sentenced the defendant after she pleaded “guilty”, and told the court that she bit the plaintiff, Amos Igbo, in self defence.
Iyorshe, in her judgment, gave Anems an option to clean the court premises for one week.
Earlier, police prosecutor, Inspector Veronica Shaagee, told the court that the convict was arrested on September 28.
Shaagee stated that Anems bit Igbo’s tongue during sex at the Tekdee Hotel where they were lodged.
She said that Igbo picked up Anems at Yaman Park and paid her N2, 000 for the night.
The police prosecutor said the offence contravened sections 166(b) and 248 of the Penal Code Cap 124 (2004) Laws of Benue.
Anems had claimed that Igbo wanted more time with her, but did not want to pay more.
”My Lord he hit me hard. I bit him in self defence,” she said.
