Auta alleged that one Patricia Jarguma, the defendant’s girl friend and who resides at Area 5 Aso Mararaba, on July 17, reported the matter at the ‘A’ Division Police Station Mararaba.

The prosecutor told the court that the defendant, on July 16, allegedly abducted the girlfriend’s two children, Abdulsalam, nine, and Abdulrasheed, six, from his girlfriend mother’s house at Mararaba.

“When the defendant went to the house to see the children, he pretended he wanted to buy them biscuits, but instead abducted them to unknown destination,” he told the court.

Auta said the offence contravened Section 273 of the Penal Code.

The magistrate adjourned the case until August 4, for hearing.
