The prosecutor explained that the complainant was asleep when the accused persons broke into the residence and assaulted her, adding that she was saved by her neighbours after she shouted for help.

Echendu told the court that the action of the three accused persons was contrary to provisions of section 79 and 284 of the Penal Code.

When their plea was taken, the three denied the charge, and the prosecutor sought for adjournment to enable the police complete investigation.

The presiding Judge, Aminu Sa’ad, ordered the accused to be remanded in prison custody, and adjourned the case till  November 5 for continuation of hearing.
