The defendants were remanded on two-count charge of conspiracy and assault.
The prosecuting officer, Insp. M. Ebirie, had told the court that on Oct. 24, at SPAR Shopping Mall in Port Harcourt, the defendants assaulted Tuoyo and his wife, Susan, over a suspicion that the old man stole Shadrack’s manhood.

According to him, this is an offence punishable under section 355 of the Criminal Code, laws of the Federation as applicable in Rivers State.
After listening to the prosecutor, the Chief Magistrate, R. N. Ibanibo, ordered that the defendants be remanded in the correctional centre and adjourned the case until Nov. 27 for hearing.
