A Grade I Area Court in Nyanya Abuja has ordered the remand of the estranged wife of a former member of the House of Representatives, Robinson Uwak, over attempted murder.

The Inspector General of Police arraigned Kazia Robinson Uwak, Joseph Utum, and Ibiang Yemiode Ofem before the court on charges of joint act and attempt to commit grievous body harm on the ex-lawmaker.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Justice M. Inuwa, in a remand warrant dated December 15, 2022, ordered Kaizia to be remanded at the Nigerian Correctional Service custodial centre in Suleja, Niger State, while remanding Utum and Ofem in the Keffi centre.

According to the police First Information Report, the defendants were arrested for agreeing “to do away” with Uwak to enable Kaizia convert and inherit his valuable properties worth millions of naira in FCT, Port Harcourt and Uyo.

The police alleged that in furtherance of the agreement, Kaizia on 27th May 2022, took a kitchen knife to stab Uwak, while he was asleep, adding that if she had succeeded to stab him, “it would have resulted in his death or bodily harm.”

“All these were done pursuant to your agreement. And you thereby committed the above offence,” the police said.

The police further said the alleged offences are contrary to sections 95, 79, and 248 of the Penal Code. 

The case has been adjourned to December 29.
