FG Calls For Arrest Of Innocent Chukwuma, Innoson Motor Boss, Two Others by maximunimpact(m): 7:02pm On Apr 15, 2019
The Federal Government Monday urged the Federal High Court in Lagos to issue a bench warrant for Innoson Nigeria Limited’s chairman Mr. Innocent Chukwuma and two of his employees.

They were charged in a fraud case before Justice Ayokunle Faji.

The Police charged them with an alleged N2.4billion shipping fraud, but the Attorney-General of the Federation later took over the case.

Others named in the charge are Charles Chukwuma, Maximian Chukwura, Mitsui Osk Lines and Anajekwu Sunny.

The prosecution is praying the court to order the arrest of Innoson Motors Chairman and his staff for failing to turn up to take their plea in the criminal charge.

Yesterday, Chukwuma and his staff were absent.

Prosecuting Counsel Mr. Julius Ajakaiye moved an application urging the court to order the absent defendants’ arrest.

He said the charge was served on them through a court-ordered February 8, 2016 substituted service following the AGF’s take-over of the case.

Ajakaiye said since then, the third and fourth defendants had been coming to court, while the first, second and fifth defendants “have refused, failed and neglected to appear in court till date”.

Consequently, he said the defendants were yet to take their plea and should therefore be compelled to appear.

He added that an April 12, 2016 amended charge could not be served on the absent defendants.

Ajakaiye urged the court to grant his application by ordering their arrest.

But defence counsel Chief George Uwechue (SAN) Prof. C. Mbadugha prayed the court to dismiss the application.

They argued that the court lacked jurisdiction to issue the warrant against the defendants “because they were not properly before the court”.

They said the application offends Order 6 of the Federal High Court Civil Procedure Rules, adding that there was no proper service on their clients.

The prosecution accused the defendants of conspiring to unlawfully falsify shipping clearance documents.

They were accused of “uttering” (presenting) the allegedly falsified shipping documents as collateral to Guaranty Trust Bank Plc to allegedly obtain a loan of N2.4billion.

The Federal Government claimed that the defendants committed the offence at Apapa wharf on October 10, 2013.

The alleged offence is contrary to sections 1(2) (c) and 3(6) of the Miscellaneous Offences Act, Cap M17, Laws of the Federation 2004.

Justice Faji adjourned until July 3 for ruling.

GTB has lobbied tinubu to Lobby the federal authorities.

I hope the FG has the sense to stay out of it but I don't have the hope.

Innoson is as vital as GTB if not more in the long run.

There is nothing innoson has done that dangote has not done with federal support to get to where he is.

I knew Tinubu will be lobbied to use Federal Might to force innoson to accepting payment of onlybone principal amount and in a staggered manner over many years ..Watch how FIRS and the customs will soon clamp down on innoson business concerns

I now fully how tribalistic nairaland is been run.

When supreme Court gave order against gtbank

The mods here continue to hide the news
Even upto 10 times.....just now they rush to bring this to front page.



What a. Country.


Is the Igbo man capable of reasoning objectively without alluding to tribalism and being the victim of every matter?

Did Nairaland not fully cover the GTBank shut down publicity that Innoson created? Did Nairaland not fully cover the false claims of Innoson regarding a supreme court ruling for which he later had to apologize to the court?


Igboman and the agony that Tinubu caused them.

Must Tinubu be responsible for the prosecution of every Igbo criminal? Must the criminal prosecution of any Igbo man result to the infamous clannishness of the Igbo?

What is the correlation between Tinubu and GTBank of Agbaje whose brother is a PDP chieftain?

Is it the fault of Tinubu that Igbo politicians are useless and not name-worthy?

Or is it Tinubu that made a business man forge documents?

Was it also Tinubu that made the Igbo Cosmas Maduka of Coscharis to lie that he was importing BMW into Nigeria for Lagos state government use for hosting National Sports Festival and therefore criminally securing an import waiver from an Igbo finance minister, when indeed it was an import solely meant for the use of the Igbo Stella Oduah?

Yet Yoruba is the cause of all the problems of your ancestors and would certainly cause all the agony of your own offspring too?
