18-year-old boy charged with criminal conspiracy and armed robbery
A magistrate court in Minna, Niger State has ordered that 18-year-old Umar Mohammed be remanded in a correctional facility over the alleged armed robbery. Mohammed was charged with criminal conspiracy and armed robbery contrary to sections 97 and 298 of the Penal Code. 

Magistrate Binta Rijau, however, declined to take the plea of the accused person on grounds that her court lacked jurisdiction to hear the matter.  

Rijau directed the police to forward a duplicate copy of the case file to the State Director of Public Prosecutions for legal advice. 

She adjourned the matter until November 26 for further mention. Earlier, the police prosecutor, Insp. Thomas Peter had told the court that the complainant, Michael Usman of Shango area, Minna, reported the matter on October 10. 

Peter said the accused person and two others, now at large, allegedly attacked the complainant and robbed him of his phone in Tunga Goro community. According to him, police detectives arrested the accused person while in possession of the said handset.
