The Police on Friday arraigned three teenagers before a Grade l Area Court, Lugbe in Abuja, for allegedly causing public nuisance.

They, however, pleaded not guilty.

The prosecutor, Mr Stanley Nwaforaku, told the court that Insp Godwin Gabriel and his patrol team attached to Asokoro Police Station arrested the defendants.

He said that the defendants were causing public nuisance around the residence of the Federal Capital Territory Minister, Nyesom Wike.

According to the prosecutor, the defendants were warned against their actions but they failed to listen.

The Judge, Malam Aliyu Kagarko, ordered that the defendants be remanded in custody.

He held that he must see their relations before granting them bail.

Kagarko adjourned the case until Oct. 13 for mention.
