In the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, the Commissioner of Police filed a case with the case number CR/08/23 against Ujah.

 

According to reports, Zuba Magisterial District received a decision on Thursday from Magistrate Abdulazeel Ismail Muhammed of the FCT Magistrate Court.

 

He declared, “Having carefully examined the medical report dated April 17, 2023 and signed by consultant psychiatrist Dr. Olusegun Shoyombo, I am of the opinion that the defendant cannot defend himself.”

Muhammad referred to Section 278(3) & (4) ACJA, 2015, because he needed immediate medical attention.

When the officer cannot come to a firm conclusion, he must certify this to the court and request an extension of remand for up to three months.

 

“I hereby order that the defendant be remanded for medical observation for one month,” Muhammed said, citing all of the above, the need to prevent the risk of jumping treatment, and the discovery that Kuje Correctional Facility has the necessary medical staff.

 

The defendant will receive the necessary medical care from the medical staff at the expense of the Federal Government of Nigeria, the magistrate continued.
