A Kano Senior Magistrates’ Court ordered the remand of Sadiq Isma’il, 20, and Fahad Gambo, 26, on Monday, for allegedly robbing a household of valuables valued at N25 million.

The defendants are standing trial on three-count charge of criminal conspiracy, armed robbery and illegal possession of prohibited fire arms.

Senior Magistrate Hajara Hamza, who did not take the pleas of the defendants because her court lacked jurisdiction, ordered their remand in a correctional centre.

Hamza ordered that the case file should be duplicated and a copy sent to the State Director of Public Prosections for legal advice and adjourned the matter until March 4, for further mention.
