The prosecuting officer, however, said the offence contravened Section 283 of the Penal Code of the state.

NAN reports that the defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The defendant had filed an oral application for his bail, which was vehemently objected to by the prosecuting officer.

According to Inusa, the offence is a grievous one.
