JUST IN: Court sends APGA leader Njoku to prison

A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Bwari has ordered that a factional leader of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Edozie Njoku and one other be remanded in prison over their alleged complicity in the forgery of a judgment of the Supreme Court.

Justice Mohammed Magudu, in a ruling on Monday, ordered that Njoku and his co-defendant, Chukwuemeka Nwoga be remanded in the Suleja prison in Niger State until November 30 when he would rule on their bail application.

Their lawyer, Panam Ntui had argued their bail application shortly after they pleaded not guilty to a 14-count charge filed in the name of the Inspector General of Police (IGP).

Prosecuting lawyer, Rimamsomte Ezekiel, objected to the bail application, arguing that the offences with which the defendants were charged are not minor, noting that some attract a maximum of 14 years imprisonment on conviction.
