Court remands two men for allegedly kidnapping teenager

05 August 2015, 19:17

Minna‎ - A Minna Magistrates' Court on Wednesday remanded two men, Abubakar Mohammed and Usman Kwari, in prison custody as they admitted kidnapping a teenager.

The two were arraigned in court on a two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and kidnapping, contrary to sections 97 and 273 of the Penal Code.

The prosecutor, Insp. Alfred Auta, told the court that one Alhaji Aliyu reported the matter at the Tegina Police Station on July 27.

Auta said the complainant alleged that the accused persons conspired and invaded his compound and kidnapped his 16-year-old son.

When the charges were read to them, they pleaded guilty and begged the court for leniency.

The prosecutor told the court that investigation into the matter was still ongoing, and asked for an adjournment to enable the police conclude investigation.

In her ruling, Magistrate Mariam King ordered the accused persons to be remanded in prison custody and adjourned the case till Aug. 17 for sentencing.
