Regarding an officer of the Nigeria Security Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Abdulkadir Bello who was charged with assaulting a member of the Nigerian Bar Association, a Magistrates’ Court in Ilorin on Wednesday has issued a bench warrant for his arrest.
Bello was charged for assaulting a member of the Ilorin branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), , Abdulfatai Rabiu.
Ibrahim was displeased at the absence of the defendant in court, stating that the excuse given by his counsel that he was on a national assignment could not be substantiated.
The magistrate however adjourned the case until Sept. 28 for further mention. Bello was charged by the police for criminal assault and wrongful confinement.
According to reports from a direct complaint, the defendant had beaten up the legal practitioner and confined him for an hour when he visited the NSCDC office to secure bail for his client.
