Akeem said that the complainant, Oluwaseyi Joseph, claimed that when he approached the accused and his friends to pay after eating, they started making flimsy excuses.

He said that Joseph immediately notified his manager that the accused and his friends had refused to pay their bill after eating.

Akeem said the manager immediately notified the police, who arrested Lawal and took him to the station for further questioning.
