Unbelievable! Court Discharges Man Accused Of Robbery In Abuja
A 21-year-old man, Emmanuel Joseph, accused of robbing his victims of valuables worth N5 million, has been set free by the Gudu Upper Area Court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The decision made other accused persons brought to the court on different charges to go into wild jubilation, stalling the court’s proceedings for several minutes.
The Judge, Alhaji Umar Kagarko discharged the accused due to abandonment of the case by the prosecution.
He noted that the prosecution had not made an appearance for the fourth time since the case was mentioned in October 2015.
Kagarko therefore said the court had no reason to continue with the trial and discharged and acquitted the accused.
