According to dailytrust acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, risk being jailed for disobeying court orders.
This was according to a notice by a magistrate court in Mpapa, Abuja, stating a committal action against anti-graft agency boss.
The EFCC, Magistrate Okeagu Azubuike stated, had failed to comply with an order of court discharging an expired remand
warrant for a defendant identified as Na’im Lawal on December and therefore endorsed form 48, ‘Notice of Consequences of Disobedience to Order of Court’ against the EFCC acting chairman.
The accused was nabbed by the anti-corruption agency on October 14, 2016 after allegedly conspiring to steal government money and obtaining money under false pretence but the court has ruled in his favour.
“Take Notice that unless you obey the order of court contained in the ruling of the court discharging the expired remand warrant issued by the Honourable Court and ordering the release of the applicant to his freedom on the 1st of December, 2016, you will be guilty of contempt of court and will be liable to committal to prison,” the notice read.
Recall that on Thursday, December 15, the Nigerian Senate refused to confirm the appointment of Magu as the chairman of the anti-graft body.
