“Motion for bail is hereby fixed for hearing on November 16.

“In the interim, the defendant shall be remanded in Kuje Prison pending the hearing and determination of the motion for bail,” he said. 

Earlier, the prosecuting counsel, Donatus Abah, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on June 5, at Lugbe village, Abuja.

Mr. Abah told the court that the defendant beat up his wife, Doosur Ankyoor, who was carrying eight months pregnancy to death.

He said the defendant beat her severally leading to her death and that of the unborn child.

He said the offence contravened Sections 221, 235 and 236 of the Penal Code.

Section 235 deals with preventing the child from being born, and 236 causing the death of an unborn child.

Mr. Ankyoor pleaded not guilty to the charge.

His counsel, Mr. Adama, had prayed the court to grant bail to the defendant to enable him take care of the three children left behind by his late wife.
