Londonderry man, 21, flees NI 'under death threat'

A Londonderry man who is facing robbery charges has fled Northern Ireland under a death threat, a court has heard.

Aidan Hannigan, 21, from Osbourne Street in the Rosemount area, failed to appear at his arraignment at Londonderry Crown Court on Tuesday.

He is accused of possessing a knife with intent to commit a robbery last September.

A defence barrister said Mr Hannigan had also been the victim of a so-called punishment shooting earlier this year.

The case was adjourned until Friday.
