Ogada said the complainant entered into the vehicle and ordered Kaue to pack but he refused and criminally abducted him to unknown destination.
He alleged that in the process, Kaue drove the vehicle in dangerous manner and the complainant fell off from the vehicle, as a result, he sustain fractures on his right shoulder.
The prosecutor said the complainant also sustained serious injuries on his hand and was rushed to Kubwa General Hospital for treatment.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The prosecutor, however, opposed the application, saying that case was still being investigated.
Adegede in reply to the prosecutor opposing her application, prayed the court to use its discretion to grand bail in favour of the defendant.
The defendant’s counsel also told the court that the defendant would not escape prosecution if granted bail.
In his ruling, the judge, Alhaji Gambo Garba held that the alleged offence was bailable.
“The court has evaluated the applications and it is convinced that admitting the defendant on bail will not in any way hurt the prosecution.

The judge ordered that the surety must reside within the court’s jurisdiction and must be verified by the court’s police.
He also ordered that in the absence of the surety, the defendant be remanded in prison and adjourned the matter until July 10 for hearing.
Police command in Ogun arrests lovers for faking kidnap
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, made the disclosure in a statement on Friday in Abeokuta.
According to the PPRO, Adekunle and Olasunkanmi live at 32, Agura Road, Abeojuta, and 4, Ogun Radio Road, Abeokuta respectively.

Paris police ban protests at United States Embassy, citing health restrictions
Paris police have banned two protests they said were planned for outside the United States Embassy on Saturday.
Several thousand Facebook users have said they are “interested” in an anti-racist protest at the embassy on Saturday linked to the killing by United States police of African-American man George Floyd.
Some 20,000 people – according to police estimates – braved a ban to attend a protest in Paris on Tuesday called by the family of Adama Traore, a black man who died in disputed circumstances in 2016 after his arrest by gendarmes in a town north of the capital.
The protest was overwhelmingly peaceful despite the ban, but some confrontations took place towards the end and police made 18 arrests.

Gunmen kill 21 in NW Nigeria attacks: police
Twenty-one residents were shot dead by gunmen who stormed six remote villages in Nigeria’s northwestern state of Zamfara earlier this week, the police said on Friday.
The gunmen, believed to be bandits, also attempted to steal cattle from the villagers in Talata Mafara and Maru local government areas of the state on Tuesday and Wednesday, Mohammed Shehu, a spokesman for the police, told Xinhua.
The gunmen first shot dead 15 people on Tuesday, when they attacked the villages in those parts of the state. They returned on Wednesday, riding on hundreds of motorcycles, and killed six more people during the burial of the previous victims, Shehu said.
Local sources said the gunmen were resisted by some youths while mourning their loved ones.
The police said they have launched an investigation into the deadly attacks.
Banditry, kidnapping and other criminal activities have recently become rampant in the northwest region. The military high command said they are in control of the situation with ongoing multiple operations against the gunmen.
A week ago, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the military to intensify their operations in that part of the country, particularly to root out the gunmen.
3 brothers in Police net over alleged murder of woman in Abuja
Three brothers have been arrested in connection with the murder of a woman in Abuja,
according to Mr Frank Mba, Public Relations of the Police Force.
Mba, in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, said that the suspects, from Isiekenesi, Ideato Local Government in Imo, are helping Police investigation into the May 14 murder of Mrs Janet Ogbonnaya, a mother of five children.
He said that the suspects were arrested by the Police in their home town where they had allegedly taken refuge after committing the crime in Abuja, to evade arrest.
Mba said that investigation that led to their arrest followed complaints by one Chinedu Ogbonnaya, who alleged that his mother, Janet, 55, a native of Ozuitem in Bende Local Government Area of Abia, had been kidnapped.
Ogbonnaya told the Police that N5 million ransom was being demanded by the kidnappers to secure the mother’s release.
“A comprehensive and painstaking investigation by Police operatives resulted in the arrest of the three suspects, who, in the course of interrogation, revealed that the victim had long been murdered and buried.
“The suspect took advantage of the visit, served her milk laced with drugs, and subsequently murdered her,” he said.
According to him, the victim was buried in a septic tank afterwhich the suspects went ahead to reach out to the family, using her phone, to demand N5 million ransom to secure her release.
Mba said that the suspects, on Thursday, led a team of investigators alongside pathologists to a residence at Wumba District, Lokogoma area of Abuja, where the victim’s decomposing body was exhumed from a septic tank.
The spokesman said that the exhumed body had been taken to the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital for forensic examination, while a Toyota Highlander Jeep belonging to the deceased had also been recovered at a mechanic workshop in Apo, where it had been repainted into a different colour.
Mba said that the vehicle documents had been fraudulently changed with ownership of the stolen vehicle criminally transferred to one of the masterminds of the crime.
According to him, investigation also revealed that the house where the deceased was killed and buried originally belonged to one of the suspects but was hurriedly sold to a third party to obliterate evidence.
“Already, the Inspector General of Police, Mr Mohammed Adamu, has commended the team of Police operatives for a job well done. He has also pledged that perpetrators of crimes will not go undetected and unpunished.

“After the kidnapping of our mother, the entire family was in a state of dilemma. I remember that each time it rains, the chairman would start crying, but we thank God her kidnappers have released her.
“And each time it was raining then, he would be saying ‘how is my mother faring with the rain?’
“Whenever the temperature was hot, he would be crying and be worried about how his old mother was faring with the kidnappers.
“So today, we are happy that she is free and healthy. The Nigeria Police must be commended because they did a good job,” he said.
