Two individuals identified as, Vincent Chikwukume and Nnandi Ujunwa have been arraigned by the police before an Abuja Grade 1 Area Court sitting in Karmo for allegedly having sexual intercourse in a public place.
The prosecutor, A.Z. Dalhatu, told the court that the accused persons were caught having sex inside a car parked by the road by policemen on routine surveillance of Abuja at Aminu Kano Crescent, Wuse II at 12:45 a.m. on Wednesday.
The accused persons were arraigned under Sections 79 and 267 of the Penal Code.
The prosecutor added that when the police subjected the accused persons to interrogations, the defendants came out of the car and assaulted one Sergeant Okpwe John attached to the police patrol team.
When the charges were read to the accused, they both pleaded not guilty and were granted bail by the presiding judge, Abubakar Sadiq, in the sum of N30,000 each with two sureties who must be on Grade Level 10 in the Federal Civil Service.
When the defence counsel Nnameka Ezeani applied for a court order for the release of the car in which the act was allegedly committed, the presiding judge refused, saying that the issue of the car was not mentioned in the first information report presented to the court and therefore lacked capacity to order for its release.
The case was adjourned to July 13 for hearing.
