The presiding Magistrate, Chief Magistrate Rosemary Ibanibo,ruled that the case file will be sent to Director of Public Prosecution for legal advice, as the court lacks the jurisdiction to hear the matter.
The Court however adjourned the case to 5 July, 2022, and remanded the suspect in prison custody, pending DPP advice.
