A 27-year-old son, Innocent Pitman, who is standing trial for allegedly assaulting and beating up his father, was on Wednesday granted a reprieve on the orders of a Grade 1 Area Court in Karu, Abuja.
He was released on bail in the sum of N100, 000 for allegedly beating his father, Isaac Pitman.
Innocent is facing a two-count of joint act and assault which contravened Sections 79 and 265 of the Penal code.
“They beat him up because he warned them to stop disturbing the peace of neighbourhood with their criminal acts and thereafter, the second son ran away,” Ismail said.
The case was adjourned until January 29 for hearing.
