A 17-year-old boy on Thurs­day ap­peared be­fore a Zuba Up­per Area Court, FCT, for al­legedly threat­en­ing to kill his mother and a neigh­bour.

The po­lice charged the teenager who lives in Ikwa Zuba, FCT, with crim­i­nal in­tim­i­da­tion.

The pros­e­cu­tion coun­sel, Ade­fioye May­owa, told the court that the mat­ter was re­ported by the com­plainant, Mr. Akinyemi Ro­tim of IKwa, Zuba, at the Zuba Po­lice Sta­tion on Oc­to­ber 11.

He said the teenager had a lit­tle mis­un­der­stand­ing with his mother and that when the com­plainant tried to make peace, he threat­ened to kill her and the com­plainant; who is a neigh­bour.

The pros­e­cu­tion said the de­fen­dant’s mother suf­fered fear due to the threat.

The pros­e­cu­tion said the com­plainant sus­pected the de­fen­dant to be a mem­ber of a cult group.

The of­fence, he said, con­tra­vened Sec­tions 397 and 406 of the Pe­nal Code.

The judge, Al­haji Gambo Garba, ad­mit­ted the de­fen­dant to bail in the sum of N100,000 with one surety in like sum and or­dered that the surety must have a rea­son­able means of liveli­hood and must re­side within the ju­ris­dic­tion of the court, and ad­journed the case to Novem­ber 19. (NAN)
