Our correspondent reports that the defendants, Daniel Yohanna, 24;Yusuf Abdullahi, 22 and Buhari Ahmed, 26, were of undisclosed addresses.
They were arraigned on a three-count charge of criminal conspiracy, house breaking and receiving stolen property.
The Police Prosecutor, Ben Emenike, told the court that the first and second defendants, Yohanna and Abdullahi, with others at large, broke into Bayelsa Guest House at Shehu Shagari Way, Abuja on April 11.
Emenike said that the defendants carted away two flat- screen television set, one refrigerator, one HP computer and four UPS.

Chidama, thereafter, adjourned the matter till Jan. 12, 2021, for hearing.
