Abuja – The Police on Friday arraigned a 25-year-old man, Inusa Musa at the Gudu Upper Area Court for alleged abduction.
The prosecutor, Insp. Dominic Joseph told the court that a police patrol team from Drumi Police Divisional Headquarters, arrested one Jemilu Yusuf with an iron cutter on April 12, and that subsequent investigations revealed that Yusuf was abducted by Musa.
