Count four stated that the said accused person, Comfort Wokoma, also in the same place and date in the aforesaid magisterial district, conducted herself “in a manner likely to cause a breach of the peace by giving some amount of money to Wokoma Westton Chimenem Ezebunwo Smith to enable them take the juju priest messenger to deliver the summon to his HRH, Eze Simeon C.

The case was adjourned to September 13, 2012, for hearing. ###
