Court orders police to arraign suspects


ABUJA – An FCT High Court on Thursday ordered the Nigeria Police to arraign Christopher Joseph, Jessey Thomas and Babatunde Ojo for alleged armed robbery.
Justice Abubakar Umar gave the order after counsel to the prosecution, Mr Adams Osu, sought leave to arraign the trio.
Osu said that the application was brought in pursuant to the provisions of section 185 sub section (B) of the Criminal Procedure Code.
” My lord, we have list of witnesses, proof of evidence as well as list of exhibits to support our case,” he said.
Osu therefore urged the court to grant his application.
The judge said, ” having carefully gone through the application, I am convinced that the application has merit.
” And a leave is hereby granted to the prosecution to arraign the suspects,” he said.
The prosecution, however, craved the indulgence of the court to make some amendment in the charge sheet.
He urged the court to adjourn the case, to enable him to make correction.
Umar, however, adjourned the case to Nov. 26 for arraignment.
He ordered that the suspect be remanded in police custody pending their arraignment. (NAN)
