Female applicant remanded for alleged armed robbery

Courtroom Court

A Makurdi, Benue State Magistrates’ court on Tuesday remanded in Correctional Service facility one Queen Monday for alleged criminal conspiracy, armed robbery and attempt to commit culpable homicide.
The Magistrate, Ajuma Igama, who ordered Monday’s remand, did not take her plea for lack of jurisdiction.
Igama adjourned the case until November 28 for further mention.
Earlier, the police prosecutor, Sergeant Ato Godwin, told the court that the case was reported by one Gabriel Matthew on October 2, 2019.
Godwin alleged that the defendant, whose address was not provided, conspired with six armed men and attacked the complainant at the gate of High Level Guest House, Makurdi.
He further told the court that the defendant and her accomplices allegedly took Matthew to Old Bridge, Makurdi, robbed him of his Techno handset valued at N14,500, N10,000 cash and then shot him with a gun on his left leg.
The prosecutor said the offences contravened sections 6(b) and 1(1) (2) (a) (b) of the Robbery and Firearms Special Provisions Act, 2004.
Godwin said investigation into the matter was ongoing and urged the court to remand the defendant until the adjourned date.
