Christian Hinhinebe, an unemployed man has been charged with threatening police officers who were on duty on Wednesday before the Karu Upper Area Court in Abuja.

Hinhinebe is accused by the police of criminal intimidation and insulting public servants.

In order to cause alarm and coerce them into performing an act for which they are not required by law, the defendant allegedly threatened and insulted a police inspector and his team in September while they were carrying out their official duties beneath the Nyanya Bridge in Karu, according to the prosecution's attorney, Olanrewaju Osho.

According to Osho, the defendant also used derogatory language about their person, which was likely to provoke and threaten public peace.

He claimed that the act violated Penal Code Sections 397 and 399. The accused entered a not-guilty plea to the accusation.

The defendant was given N100,000 bail by Judge Hassan Mohammed, with one surety who had to be a resident of the court's jurisdiction.

Mohammed ruled that the surety's National ID card must be kept in court and that a court officer and the police must verify the surety's address.

The case was adjourned until November 3 for further hearing while the court instructed the defendant to draft an undertaking to maintain peace.
