A Magistrate Court sitting in Port-Harcourt has ordered that a governorship aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers State, Farah Dagogo be remanded in Police Custody.

Dagogo, a federal lawmaker, who was arrested at the venue of the PDP governorship screening in Port Harcourt on Thursday evening, was arraigned at magistrate court on Friday.

The legal team of Dagogo opposed an application for the charges to be read when the matter was mentioned stressing that one of the two-count charges borders on cultism which the magistrate court lacks the power to hear.

Chief Magistrate, Amadi Nna after citing the two-count charge, stated a new rule of the court which does not empower the magistrate court to hear cases on cultism.

The magistrate thereafter ordered that the defendant be remanded in police custody and adjourned the matter till May 9 for arraignment and bail consideration.
