“The trio initially attacked him with a knife and when they realised that he was not injured, they hit him in the head with stone severally and injured him.

“He was later taken to Murtala Specialist Hospital for treatment.” Salisu said

The accused persons, however, pleaded guilty to the one-count charge leveled against them and begged for forgiveness

The presiding Judge, Senior Magistrate Huda H. Abdu in his ruling sentenced them to two months imprisonment or a fine of N10, 000 each.
