Edozie Njoku, The National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has urged the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and other well-meaning Nigerians to wade in and save Adebisi Ogunbiyi, former secretary to Justice Mary Odili, from harassment
Njoku also called on the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) to study the Supreme Court ruling on the leadership tussle in the party, as he added that the judgment of the Apex court pronounces him the National Chairman of the party.
Briefing the media on Wednesday in Abuja, the embattled APGA leader while recalling a letter from Justice Odili, noted that it was wrong for the police and Victor Oye to seek to drag Ogunbiyi into a case in which the retired Justice of the Supreme Court had clarified an alleged clerical error which announced Oye as national chairman of APGA.
He stressed that the accused “committed no crime as alleged by the police,” as he lamented that having “spent two days in prison, he wouldn’t want the girl to have the same experience.”
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has adjourned until February 20 for ruling on the clarification of the alleged clerical error surrounding the declaration of Oye as national chairman.
Daily Independent reported earlier that the Federal Capital High Court on Tuesday dismissed a request for a bench warrant to arrest Ogunseye Adebisi, Personal Assistant to Justice Mary Odili (Rtd).
The Court presided over by Justice M.A Madugu while noting the application made by the Inspector General of Police, ruled “this application made by the prosecution is amazing and ridiculous.”
The Court also adjourned the case of forgery preferred against Edozie Njoku, factional National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), and the National Youth Leader, Chuks Nwoga, to March 13.
