Danjuma said ‘’The accused was charged with a one-count charge of fabricating false evidence, an offence that contravened Section 156 of the Penal Code Law.’’

The court did not take the plea of the accused person.

After listening to Adamu, Chief Magistrate Japhet Maida ordered that the accused person be remanded in prison custody.
