An Edo State High Court has remanded three men in prison for inserting pepper into the private parts of one miss Favour .
The three suspects: Lucky , a.k.a. One Man Squad, head of vigilance group in Ugbiyoko community; Iyamu Kingsley and Joel Otoghile, who is the prime suspect, were arraigned on Monday following their arrest by the Police.
The accused were arraigned on a 14-count charge bordering on kidnapping, attempted murder, unlawful administration of a noxious substance into the private parts of Ada and unlawful trial by ordeal.
A video of the men carrying out jungle justice on their victim had gone viral on social media last week.
She was accused of stealing an iPhone worth, N44,000 and was tortured into confessing to the alleged offence.
The sad incident took place in Nigeria.
Peter Ugwumba, prosecuting counsel, prayed the court to remand the three pending advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
He said: “A native doctor, yet to be arrested, magically inserted two live bullets into the body of Ada, saying she would die if she refused to confess.”
Justice J. Acha ordered the remand of the three while adjourning the case till March 6, 2019.
He asked the prosecuting counsel to produce other culprits in the act, especially the native doctor.
