A Kaduna Chief Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday ordered that two men, Amos Isaiah, 32, and Musa Ezekiel, 30, accused of armed robbery be remanded in prison, pending legal advice from the Office of the State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
Magistrate Ibrahim Emmanuel who gave the order adjourned the case until Dec. 21 for mention.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp Chidi Leo, had told the court that the accused and two others at large, conspired to rob one Mrs Elijah Mary of N250,000, on Nov. 8 at about 2 p.m.
Leo said the accused were armed with a screwdriver, cutlass and other dangerous weapons.
The plea of the defendants, who were docked on two counts of conspiracy and armed robbery, was not taken.
The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of section 6 (b) and 1(a)(b) of Robbery and Firearms Act, 2004.
