The accused  were docked on a three -count charge of criminal conspiracy, armed robbery and causing grevious hurt.

The prosecutor, Insp. Emmanuel Danladi, told the court that one Sanusi Mohammed of Paiko reported the matter at the station on Aug.18.

Danladi quoted the complainant as alleging that he was going about his business as a commercial motorcycle rider when Umar and Isah boarded his motorcycle to Jerepapi village for N100.

He said unknown to him; Umar and Isah had conspired with Lawal and two others, now at large, who emerged from the bush during  the journey with cutlasses in their hands,  attacked and robbed him of his motorcycle.

When the charges were read to them, they pleaded not guilty.

Magistrate Mariam Kings, however declined to take their plea, saying her court lacked the jurisdiction to try the matter.

Kings ordered the police to forward the case file to the State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPPs) for legal advice.

She adjourned the case until October 3 for further mention.
