The accused was arraigned over a two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide, contrary to sections 97 and 221 of the Penal Code.

The  prosecutor, Mr Emmanuel Danladi, told the court that one Isyaku Hussaini of Garatu village in Bosso Local Government of Niger, reported the matter to the police on April 4.

Danladi quoted the complainant as alleging that he received information that the accused conspired with some persons to attack and machete his son to death in the bush.

When the charges were read to the accused person, he pleaded not guilty.

The prosecutor thereafter prayed the court for an adjournment to enable police complete its investigation into the case.The magistrate, Aisha Bawa, however, declined to take the plea of the accused person, saying that she lacked the jurisdiction to hear the matter.

Bawa said that the offence could only be tried by a high court and ordered the police to forward the case file to the Director of Public Prosecution for legal advice.

She ordered the accused person to be remanded in prison and adjourned the matter to May 10 for further mention.
