Court Rejects Fg’s Request For Arrest Warrant Against Ekweremadu by dre11(m): 4:54pm On Nov 08
Ade Adesomoju , Abuja


The Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday turned down the request by the Federal Government to issue an arrest warrant against the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu .

The Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property had, on behalf of the Federal Government , urged the court to order the arrest of Ekweremadu following the absence of the senator , who was scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday on charges of non - declaration of assets .

The prosecuting counsel , Mr. Celcus Ukpong, informed the judge, Justice Binta Nyako, that two counts of failure to declare assets were filed against the senator on May 11, 2018 .

Ukpong said the summons for the arraignment scheduled for Wednesday had been served on the Deputy Senate President , but he chose to ignore it .

He said , “ He decided not to obey the summons . We , therefore , apply for a bench warrant to be issued against him . ”

But responding, Ekweremadu ’ s lawyer , Chief Adegboyega Awomolo (SAN) , urged the court to disregard the application for a bench warrant to be issued against his client .

He informed the court that his client had, on November 1 , 2018 , filed a motion challenging the competence of the charges and the jurisdiction of the court to entertain the case .

Awomolo argued that without first resolving the application , the matter could not proceed to stage of arraignment .

He cited some Supreme Court decisions to back his contention .

Ekweremadu ’ s properties targeted for interim forfeiture comprised nine in Abuja , two in London, eight in Dubai , and three in Florida , USA.

Following its findings on the allegedly undeclared assets , the panel , in May this year , filed two counts against Ekweremadu , alleging in one of the counts in the case marked FHC/ABJ /CR /62 /2018 , that upon notice to declare his assets in the manner prescribed by the SPIPRPP , the Deputy Senate President “ refused ” to make the declaration “ without reasonable excuse . ”

In the second count, the prosecution alleged that the defendant “ neglected to declare ” his assets “ without reasonable excuse upon the notice to declare ” his assets “ in the manner prescribed by the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property” .

The alleged offences were said to be contrary to and punishable under Section 3 (3 )(1 )( a ) of the Recovery of Public Property (Special Provision) Act 2004.

The Obono-Obla WAEC certificate forger panel wants to arrest the DSP that just escaped an assassination attempt along side his family This APC government is filled with satanic people who have a hand in his ordeal.
Meanwhile Timipre Sliva's 48 houses were restored and Oshiomole's dubiously acquired assets are yet to be probe.

The tormentors are at it again.
First they sent people to assassinate him, their plans fell through. Then the Nigerian Police claim it was a case of Burglary and not assassination.. Someone who can break into someone's apartment can as well kill the inhabitants..

In Jon Bellion's voice.. "Nigeria is at an all time low low low low low low low....

Evil people with no agenda but blame game.. You used corruption as a campaign anthem and got voted, now you are still singing corruption.... Uncle Bubu, Change topic...

They want to secure bench warrant for his arrest since they could not succeed in their plot to assassinate him. Is it not clear now who is behind the assassination attempt on his life? Abba Kyari and the short devil in Kaduna state government house HellRufy are the chair persons in the incessant killings going on all over the zoo and the thunders that will fire them is still receiving hard training in Israel.

Let he who come to equity come with clean hands. The question from Nigerians should be " Is he innocent? " if yes we can cry out for injustice.

Truly the APC is a divisive party.
How they chose to ignore the corruption charges against one of their own and focus on someone who was almost assassinated is beyond me.
Nigeria is lost, I pray we find our way as a nation again.
Corruption my foot.

One of our worst problem is the judiciary, don’t be surprised that another court of law will grant the arrest request.
