A High Court in Kaduna State on Thursday ordered that two men, who allegedly hacked their friend to death, be remanded in a Nigerian Correctional Service facility in Kaduna.
The police charged Isah Yusuf, 35, and Aminu Shuaibu, 32, with two counts of conspiracy and culpable homicide.
Justice Hanatu Balogun, who gave the order, adjourned the case until March 5 for hearing.
Earlier, the prosecution counsel, Aisha Abdulmalik, told the court that the alleged offence was committed in November 2019.
Ms Abdulmalik, alleged that the defendants on the said date conspired and killed one Shehu Abbas of Ungwan Rimi in Kaduna.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
