Court Sends APGA Leader Chief Edozie Njoku to Prison
Chief Edozie Njoku, a leader of a faction within the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), has been sentenced to time served in a correctional facility.
The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Bwari issued an order that Njoku and another individual be remanded in custody due to allegations that they were complicit in the forgery of a judgement issued by the Supreme Court.
In a decision that was handed down on Monday, Justice Mohammed Magudu ordered that Njoku and his co-defendant Chukwuemeka Nwoga be remanded in custody at the Suleja prison in Niger State until the 30th of November, at which time he would make a decision regarding their request for bail.
Shortly after entering not guilty pleas to a 14-count charge brought in the name of the Inspector General of Police, their attorney, Panam Ntui, argued for their release on bail. The charge had been brought (IGP).
Rimamsomte Ezekiel, a prosecuting attorney, filed an objection to the bail application.
He argued that the offences with which the defendants were charged are not minor, and he pointed out that some of them carry a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison if the defendant is found guilty.
