07 October 2013, 21:23

Mararaba - Two girls, Favour Sabo, 21, and Glory Chigbo, 18, of behind Government Secondary School, Aso Pada, were arraigned at a Grade 1 Area Court for criminal intimidation and causing hurt.

The complainant, Alimat Ahmed, 23, of same address, told the court that the accused persons poured hot water on her on Oct. 7, at about 7.45 am.

Narrating her ordeal, Ahmed said that the Chigbo was the first to splash cool water on her when she was drinking tea outside her room on the fateful day.

"I warned her to stop and my sisters advised me not to react. Later I was making myself up to go to the market, Sabo then poured a half bucket of hot water on me,” Ahmed alleged.

She said that she fell on the ground and when her sister attempted to assist her to get off the ground, Chigbo prevented her.

"I later discovered the N4,520 I intend to use to buy things in the market was missing,” she added.

The offence contravened Sections 397, 244 and 265 of the Penal Code.

If convicted, the accused persons could spend up to 10 years in prison or an option to pay a fine.

The accused persons pleaded not guilty.

The Presiding Judge, Albert Maga, granted bail to the accused persons in the sum of N50,000 and a surety each in like sum.

Maga said the surety must possess landed property and reside within the jurisdiction of the court.

He adjourned the case to Oct. 10, for hearing.
