Abuja - Three men from the Niger State face prosecution following the recent abduction of a Nigerian minor.
Abubakar Usman (26), Musa Ibrahim (30) and Suleiman Abubakar (28) appeared at the Minna Magistrate Court facing conspiracy and kidnapping.
Earlier this month, the trio allegedly picked the three-year-old boy and dashed away with him.
An alert neighbour notified the boy's mother and the incident was reported to police at Kpankungu Divisional office.
The boy was rescued a few hours later while the suspects were arrested near their alleged hide out in Gada village.
The accused are pleading not guilty.
The case was adjourned to July 9 for bail application.
