“Your Lordship, I do not know the kind of dispute that will make a father to disfigure his son in this manner, the son has gone totally blind,” he said.
The offences contravened Sections 172 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
According to NAN, The accused, while pleading not guilty said he sprayed his son with acid out of self-defence.

“I have trained all my children to the best of my ability, I sent them all to higher institutions, his brother is a lawyer and before the incident, he refused to work as he indulges in drinking alcohol.
“On the day in question, I was in my daughter’s house trying to help her and my son-in-law to repair their car.
“My son came to me and his sister’s husband with a broken bottle, demanding money and in self-defence, I sprayed battery acid on him.”
The Magistrate, Mr A. A. Adesanya, reprimanded the accused for taking laws into his hands, adding that he should have involved the police in resolving the matter.
Adesanya said, “Seeing that three of the complainant’s siblings are here to testify to his unruly behaviours toward their father is an indication that things were really not going right between father and son.
“The police should have been involved before it degenerated to this,” he said.
Adesanya granted the two accused N100,000 bail each with two sureties each in like sum and adjourned the case until March 14.
