2 men remanded in prison for beating security guard to stupor
The accused are facing a three-count charge of conspiracy, criminal force and causing grievous hurt.
The judge, Ibrahim Shekarau, ordered that Badamasi Sani, 25 and Salisu Nura, 23, be remanded in Keffi prison pending further order of the court.
Earlier, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Steve Kwaza, told the court that the defendants conspired and mercilessly beat up one Namakka Danjuma, a security guard at Alfarma Quarters, Mararaba on March 24.
“Apart from beating the security into an unconscious state, the defendants used a stick on the victim and as a result, he had a fracture on his right shoulder.
“The injury was so bad that Mararaba Medical Centre and Keffi Federal Medical Centre rejected him and referred him to Orthopedic Hospital, Dala in Kano State.
“As I speak now, the victim is diagnosed of internal bleeding and is still on admission with no hope of when he will be discharged or recover,” Kwaza told the court.
The prosecutor also pleaded with the court to put on hold sentence of the accused pending when the victim would be out of hospital to determine possible compensation.
He said the offences contravened Sections 97, 263 and 247 of the Penal Code.
The defendants pleaded guilty to the three-count charge.
The case was adjourned until April 10 for ruling and sentencing.
