A 29-year old motorcyclist, Abubakar Umar and 16 others were on Tuesday arraigned before an Abuja Senior Magistrates` court for alleged joint act and inciting public disturbance.
The police prosecutor, Cpl. Gambo Salihu, told the court that residents of Lugbe Federal Housing Abuja lodged a complaint at the Lugbe police station on Feb 22 that there was a suspicious movement around the junction to the estate.
Salihu said that the police responded promptly by sending Supt. Kenneth Iroh who led a patrol team to the area and arrested the suspects.
According to him, the suspects are Abubakar Umar, Hamisu Shuibu, Adamu Musa, Kabir Mohammed, Haruna Bala, Shehu Dahiru, Zayin Nasiru, Abdullahi Yahuza, Safiyanu Abdullahi and Nura Ibrahim.
Others are Haruna Ibrahim, Dahiru Umar, Uzairu Adamu, Ibrahim Lawal, Haruna Mani, Abubakar Isah and Ali Lawal, all male of Babangida Market Lugbe.
Salihu said the accused persons were threatening residents and behaving in a manner capable of causing breach of peace.
The prosecutor added that the accused persons were unable to give a satisfactory explanation of their action during interrogation.
According to him, the offences contravened sections 79 and 114 of the Penal Code.
Counsel to the accused persons, Mr Steven Akpe who objected to the application for adjournment, urged the court to begin trial immediately.
The accused persons, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Magistrate Aliyu Shafa granted the accused bail in the sum of N50, 000 each and a surety who must reside within the court's jurisdiction.
The case was adjourned to May 23 for continuation of hearing. (NAN)
