Another herbalist arrested for rape in Kwara

Three men arrested on suspicion of assaulting a man

Three men were on Thursday detained at the First Grade Regional Court in Kabusa, Abuja, for allegedly punching Harry Mankuru, who tried to break up a fight between two men.

Police have charged John Obeya, 31, Stephen Maika, 23, and Isaac Victor, 22, of Angwan Sayyawa, with assault, battery and causing grievous bodily harm.

However, they each maintained their innocence.

Prosecutor CC Okafor had earlier told the court that Mankuru had reported the matter to Kabusa Police Station on January 1.

She said the accused inflicted injuries on Mankur, the usual complainant, while he was trying to break up the fight between the other two.

Justice Mallam Abubakar Sadiku granted the defendants bail of N50,000 with one surety each of the same amount.

Mr Sadiq adjourned the case until January 30 for hearing.
