The accused, Vincent Chikwukume and Nnandi Ujunwa, were arraigned under Sections 79 and 267 of the Penal Code, after they were caught in the act inside a car parked by the road by policemen on routine surveillance of the city on Aminu Kano Crescent, Wuse II, at 12:45 a.m., on Wednesday, June 8.

The police prosecutor, A.Z. Dalhatu, told the court that when the police subjected the accused persons to interrogations, the defendants came out of the car and assaulted one Sergeant Okpwe John, attached to the police patrol team.

When the charges were read to the accused, they both pleaded not guilty and were granted bail by the presiding judge, Abubakar Sadiq, in the sum of N30,000 each, with two sureties who must be on Grade Level 10 in the Federal Civil Service.

When the defence counsel Nnameka Ezeani, applied for a court order for the release of the car in which the act was allegedly committed, the presiding judge refused, saying that the issue of the car was not mentioned in the first information report presented to the court and therefore lacked capacity to order for its release.

Sadiq thereafter adjourned the case to July 13 for hearing.
