The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the defendants are David Tset-Amee, 27, Samuel Irimiah, 32 and Francis Timipire.
He adjourned the case until April 12 for a hearing.
Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Stanley Nwaforaku told the court that on Feb. 24 the defendants, and others now at large, connived and went to their client’s house and cut and stole a black amour cable, valued at N700,000.
The matter, the Nwaforaku said was reported at Trademore division, Abuja by Kingsley Williams of Ana rock Estate, Airport Road, Abuja on behalf of his master Uchenna John.
The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 97 and 288 of the Penal Code.
The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges. (NAN)
