The police charged Ogah, who lives in Akwete Akpa village in Oturkpo L.G.A Benue with criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide.

Magistrate Joy Ayia, did not take the plea of Ogah, for want of jurisdiction.

She ordered that the accused person be remanded at the Nigerian Correctional Service centre in Oturkpo, Benue.
