      Tuesday, two students appeared in Kado Grade I Area Court in Abuja for the assault of a teenager named Diamond Onyemobi at her home.

      Precious Yahaya, 25, and Goodness Zacheaus, 24, both of the Gwarinpa Estate in Abuja, were accused by the police of criminal trespass and assault.

      However, the accused entered a not guilty plea to the accusation.

      Sandra Aladum, the mother of the complainant and defendant, and Stanley Nwafoaku, the prosecution’s attorney, informed the court that Sandra Aladum reported the incident to Galadima Police Station on September 7.

      Mr. Nwafoaku claimed that the defendants broke into the complainant’s apartment on the specified date and assaulted her teenage daughter.

      The teenage girl allegedly suffered a head injury and was taken to the hospital for treatment.

      The prosecution attorney also informed the court that one of the defendants smashed the complainant’s phone while they were assaulting the girl and starting to record the incident on video.

      According to him, the defendants confessed to the crime during the police investigation.

      The offence violated sections 348 and 268 of the Penal Code, he continued.

      Invoking sections 158 and 165 of the Administrative Criminal Justice Act (ACJA) 2015 as well as sections 35(4) and 36(5) of the 1999 constitution, the defendant’s attorney David Idris pleaded with the court to grant bail to the defendant in the broadest terms possible.

      Additionally, the defense attorney stated that the defendants have trustworthy sureties who are both in gainful employment, and that neither of them would attempt to circumvent the investigation or jump bail.

      However, the defense attorney’s request for bail was not opposed by the prosecution attorney.

      The defendants were each given a surety in the amount of N300,000 by the judge, Mohammed Wakili.

      The defendants are required by Mr. Wakili to submit a trustworthy surety who must be a resident of the court’s territorial jurisdiction.

      The court registrar must verify the sureties’ identification cards, two recent passport photos, and BVN printouts, he continued.

      The judge postponed the case until a hearing on October 25.
