A Chief Magistrate court in Adamawa State has remanded nine men at a correctional centre in Yola on charges of criminal conspiracy and armed robbery.

The Chief Magistrate Court I in Yola issued the remand order after the presiding judge, Magistrate Mohammed Fufore, received the defendants as arraigned by the prosecuting police officers: Inspector S. S. Nicholas and ASP Francis Audu.

Seven of the defendants—Abdulwahab Abdulkarim, Musa Mohammed, Ibrahim Buba, Mallamjo Yunusa, Haruna Umar, Musa Buba, and Sumai Buba—pleaded not guilty to the charges, arraigned on the same First Information Report presented by Inspector S. S. Nicholas.

Two other defendants, Samson John and Babangida Mohammed, were arraigned by ASP Francis Audu for criminal conspiracy and armed robbery. Samson John pleaded guilty, while Babangida Mohammed pleaded not guilty.

Inspector Nicholas stated that the seven defendants were found in possession of two cutlasses, two knives, a horn, and a razor blade during their arrest in Yola South’s main market on May 17, 2024.

ASP Francis Audu explained that the other two defendants were apprehended on May 13, 2024, by a local hunter who witnessed Samson confessing to conspiring with the second defendant and two others, who are currently at large, to engage in armed robbery activities near Galaxy Hotel in Numan.

The presiding judge adjourned the case to June 3, 2024, after the plea of the defendants.
