A magistrates’ court in Makurdi, Benue State, on Tuesday ordered the remand of two brothers and their friend in a correctional centre for attacking villagers.

The prosecutor, Insp Regina Ishaya, told the court that the case was transferred from the Wannune Division in Tarka LGA to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Makurdi.

Ishaya said Mr John Ikyaha, Commander of the Benue State Volunteer Guards in Tarka LGA, reported at the Wannune Division on November 5, that the Amazua brothers and their friend who all lived in Makurdi were suspected members of a militia gang terrorising the area.

The Magistrate, Mrs Erdoo Ter, who did not take the plea of the three suspects for want in jurisdiction, adjourned to January 24.
