The ongoing #EndSARS protests on Tuesday stalled the arraignment of four armed robbery suspects at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Kubwa.
The police were to arraign Usman Dikko, Segun Adigun, Sunday Haruna, and Okafor Chimeze on a four-count charge of armed robbery at the court.
The prosecution counsel, Adama Musa, told the court that the suspects were supposed to be produced in court from Keffi, Nasarwa State.
Musa said the police vehicle bringing the suspects to court was turned back by the #EndSARS protesters.
He, however, prayed for an adjournment to enable the police to produce the suspects in court to take their plea.
The police alleged that the defendants armed with guns and knives invaded the Works and Housing Estate, Gwarimpa, Abuja, and stole N2.3 million cash, six cell phones, and one H.P laptop on October 9.
The prosecutor said the items belonged to Abdalla Elbady, Wessam Saber, and Awad Nasr.
The offence, he said, is punishable under sections 1(2)(a),6(a)(b)(c) of the Robbery and Firearms act.
Justice Bello Kawu adjourned the case till November 2 for arraignment.
