Innoson Withdraws Case Against EFCC, GTB

23 Décembre 2017

Innoson Nigeria Limited and its Chief Executive Officer/Managing Director, Innocent Chukwuma, on Friday withdrew an ex parte application they filed against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Other defendants in the ex-parte application were the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Inspector-General of Police (IG), and Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB).

The ex parte application, filed on Thursday, was withdrawn on Friday by the applicant.

"But one thing l know is the fact that there has been a case between him (Chukwuma) and the GTBank that is pending in court and it is being prosecuted".

Mr Kamoru, in an application brought before Justice Shagari on Friday, prayed the court to decline entertaining Innoson's ex parte application on the claim that Innoson and his company had suppressed material facts.

The arrest of Chukwuma had stirred controversy in the country, leading to criticisms by other industrialists, the Senate as well as members of the public on the motives behind it.

Kamoru cited several judicial authorities, urging the court to hear his client although the ex-parte motion was not formerly served on them.

The minister, whose office supervises the EFCC, said the anti-graft agency had yet to brief him on the development.

Innoson's lawyer Prof. MacCarty Mbaduagha said he was withdrawing the application.

The judge said: "In view of the application of the applicants' counsel, the application is hereby granted".

Although the industrialist was said to have been released on bail by EFCC, he was said to have demanded an explanation from the organisation on why its men came to pick him up from his house like a criminal.
