El-Rufai: Kaduna High Court orders arrest of CCB Chairman

A Kaduna State High Court gave a warrant to arrest Dr. Muhammed Isah, who is the Chairman of Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB, for contempt.

The warrant was issued by Justice Mario Mohammed after the chairman of the CCB turned down several summons by the court in a suit between Governor El-Rufai and Today’s publishing Company Limited, and one other.

The warrant form direct the police and other authorities to arrest the CCB Chairman and bring him before the court on 13th February, 2019.

Before now, the Today Publishing Company, the publisher of The Union Newspapers, had filed application requesting the court to subpoena CCB Chairman to produce assets declaration of Governor  El-Rufai in court after many efforts it made to get it from the CCB failed.

Justice Mohammed gave the approval considering the application that was filed by Counsel to The Union Newspapers, Mr J.N. Egwuonwu (SAN), during the continuation of defence at previous sitting.

Egwuonwu, who was represented by Hiifan Andrew Abuul, had penned down an application to the court to Subpoena CCB to tender the asset declaration of the Governor before the court.

A source had reported that the governor had visited the court due to a report that was done by the newspaper in which it stated that he had declared N90 billion in his CCB assets declaration form.
