Out of the sixty youths arrested for their involvement in a gang fight that led to the killing of a policeman and a trader in Minna, Niger State capital, fifty-three have been imprisoned at that New Bussa, Borgu Local Government Area Correctional Centre on the orders of a Magistrate Court I.

The suspects were charged with culpable homicide, conspiracy, robbery and being in the procession of weapons among others on Thursday.

Speaking to the court before they were imprisoned, the Prosecuting Police Officer, Inspector Ahmed Saidu, said that the offences were criminal in nature and cannot be handled by the magistrate court.

He appealed to the court to adjourn the case to enable the police to forward the case file to the state Ministry of Justice for legal advice.

The case was adjourned to February 21, 2022 by the magistrate, Nasir Mu’azu, for further hearing.

He directed the police to immediately forward the case file to the Ministry of Justice for proper prosecution.
