An Ebute Meta Chief  Magistrates’ Court on Thursday remanded  34-year-old Yakubu Sarafa  for allegedly kidnapping and sexually assaulting a woman.

The Chief  Magistrate, Mrs Oluyemiai Adelaja, who gave the remand order, said Sarafa should remain behind bars  pending receipt of legal advice from Director of Public Prosecution.
