A Kaduna Chief Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday revoked the bail it granted to a 23- year-old cleaner, Samuel Thomas, for failure to appear in court after several adjournments.
Revoking the bail, Magistrate Hajara Dauda, ordered the police to arrest the defendant.
She also remanded Thomas in a correctional facility.
“As for the surety, court orders him to appear in court before within 24 hours. If the surety fails to do so, he will forfeit his bail bond,’’ Dauda said.
arlier, the prosecutor, Insp. Sunday Baba, told the court that since the defendant was admitted to bail, he appeared in court only once.
“I urge the court to issue a bench warrant for the arrest of the defendant and his bail should be revoked,’’ Baba said.

The defendant had pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The Magistrate had granted the defendant N100,000 bail with one surety.
