Three commercial motorcyclists, names given as Koffi David, Hakimi Adamu and Saidu Ibrahim, have been charged to court for allegedly abducting a housewife, Hadiza Goma, for sex.
The men, who also threatened to kill the woman’s husband, were arraigned before an Igbosere magistrate’s court, Lagos.
The defendants reside at number 9, Bank Road, Ikoyi, Lagos and are standing trial on a three-count charge of conspiracy, abduction and threat to life.
They, however, pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
The police prosecutor, Inspector Ingobo, had earlier told the court that the defendants committed the offences on July 4, at about 11:30p.m. at 9, Flood Gate Close, Alasia Ajah, Lagos.
Ingobo further explained that the defendants conspired and abducted one Hadiza with the intention of having sexual intercourse with her.
