2023 Elections: Court issues New ruling for APGA factional leader

74

A bench warrant has been issued for the arrest of a factional leader of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Edozie Njoku over his alleged involvement in the forgery of a ruling of the Supreme Court.

The order was issued on Monday, November 21, by a high court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Bwari, The Nation reports.

This verdict, read out by Justice Mohammed Magudu, came after Njoku and his co-defendant, Chukwuemeka Nwoga, failed to attend the court for their planned arraignment on a 14-court charge filed by the Inspector General Police (IGP).

As contained in the order, Njoku and Nwogu are to be apprehended by the police, produced, and arraigned in court by the police on Monday, November 28.

Before the ruling was given, the prosecuting lawyer, Rimamsomte Ezekiel, had urged the court to order the production of the defendants, who, according to him, were served with the charge and informed about the proceedings, but absconded.

However, while Njoku’s lawyer, Panam Ntui, challenged the mode of service of the charge on his client and prayed the court to reschedule the arraignment to enable him to return from travel, lawyer to the complainant, Stephen Nwoga, challenged the prayer, arguing that Njoku did not make any trip.

After studying the circumstances, Justice Magudu ruled that it was obvious that both Njoku and Nwogu chose not to attend court.
