Arrest and handcuffed

The judge, Yakubu Ishaku, ordered the remand of Adamu, docked on a two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and extortion, offences he denied committing.

Ishaku adjourned the case until September 4 for hearing.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Mr Frank Swem, told the court that on August 18, at about 11.15 a.m., Okon came to the Divisional Police Station at Masaka and reported the matter.

He said that on August 15, at about 10:40a.m., the defendant conspired with 15 others now at large to commit the crime.

Swem said that Adamu and his accomplices criminal trespassed into Leonard Hotel, located at Jankanwa Masaka and assaulted the complainant.

He added that they also fought with two customers that lodged in the hotel.

Swem said that as a result of the fight, they made away with two plasma television sets and assorted drinks worth N280,000.

He added that when the defendant was arrested, he admitted committing the offence.

The prosecutor said that the offences contravened Sections 97 and 292 of the Penal Code.

He also opposed bail for the defendant, saying that the defendant had refused to disclosed the identities of his accomplices.
