Danladi said the complainant alleged that the defendant fought with his son, Usman Alhaji, as a result of which both of them sustained injuries.

He said the complainant’s son died on the way to the hospital.

The Judge, Mariam Kings, did not take the plea of the defendant on the ground that her court lacked jurisdiction to try the matter.
