The Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja Police Command on Wednesday arraigned one Vincent Chikwukume and Nnandi Ujunwa before an Abuja Grade 1 Area Court for allegedly having sexual intercourse in a public place.
According to the prosecutor, A.Z. Dalhatu, policemen on routine
surveillance of Abuja at Aminu Kano Crescent, Wuse II at 12:45 a.m. on
Tuesday caught the accused persons having sex inside a car parked by the
Dalhatu added that when the police subjected the accused persons to
interrogations, the defendants came out of the car and assaulted one
Sergeant Okpe John attached to the police patrol team.
The duo, arraigned under Sections 79 and 267 of the Penal Code, pleaded not guilty.
The presiding judge, Abubakar Sadiq, granted the accused bail in the sum
of N30, 000 each with two sureties who must be on Grade Level 10 in the
Federal Civil Service.
The presiding judge, however, refused a court application by the defence
counsel, Nnameka Ezeani, for the release of the car in which the act
was allegedly committed.
The judge said the issue of the car was not mentioned in the first
information report presented to the court, therefore, lacked the
capacity to order for its release.
Sadiq adjourned the case to July 13 for mention.
