The trigger happy soldier- Lance Coporal Ajayi Johnson was this morning arraigned before the Chief Magistrate Court 1 presided over by His Worship- Linda Ugboaja.

No Counsel appeared for the accused. C Adiele Esq held watching brief alongside U Amaraizu Esq for the norminal complainant.
The Prosecution, relying on Sec 100(1)b of the Abia State Administration of Criminal Justice Law prayed the Court to rely on same to make the necessary Order. The Court therefore declined jurisdiction and Ordered that the accused be remanded in Prison custody.
The Court asked the Police to transfer the case file to DPP. The matter was therefore adjourned to September 16 for report of compliance.
