Yakubu left his phone in the house which his father decided to keep it safe for him, but upon his return home he assaulted his dad for changing the location of the phone.

The prosecution said Abukari’s mother, uncomfortable with what was going on took the phone to the son but he would not collect it from her and remained adamant that the father brought it himself.

A formal report was made to the police the next morning and he was arrested.
