He was released on bail in the sum of N100, 000 for allegedly beating his father, Isaac Pitman.
Innocent is facing a two-count of joint act and assault which contravened Sections 79 and 265 of the Penal code.
The judge, Mr Aliyu Kagarko, who gave the ruling, also granted the surety in like sum.
Earlier, Prosecutor Mahmud Ismail ’la told the court that the father of the accused reported him at Jikwoyi Police Station on December 24.
He said Pitman reported that the accused and his brother, Humprey Pitman, who is still at large, jointly assaulted him.
“The two sons of the complainant tied him and beat him so much that he was pleading with them not to harm him.
“They beat him up because he warned them to stop disturbing the peace of neighbourhood with their criminal acts and thereafter, the second son ran away,” Ismail said.
The case was adjourned until January 29 for hearing
