Nigerian Man Charged For Telling Pet Monkey To Bite Boy

A 32-year-old Nigerian man appeared in court Tuesday on a charge of instructing his monkey to bite a teenager, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported.

Prosecutor lawyer Thaddeus Joseph told an Abuja magistrate court that Sunday Adeyemi on September 2 instructed his monkey to bite 11-year-old Samson Sule.

Adeyemi denied the charge.

"The children always play with my monkey. I cannot instruct it to bite them. It is not possible," Adeyemi told the court.

Presiding magistrate Folashade Oyekan granted Adeyemi bail and adjourned further hearing to September 17.
