The Chairman of Innoson Motors, Mr Innocent Chukwuma, has depicted the warrant for his capture by a Federal High Court in Lagos as maltreatment of court process.
As per an announcement marked by Mr Chukwuma, the request is a nullity and does not have any ground in law, including that the court did not have the fundamental ward or jurisdiction.
“Firstly, there is no prima facie case against me. The charge was based on a suspected or trumped-up action as the charge on the said action has been discharged by the Court of Appeal.
“There was no notice of trial served to me in pursuant to the relevant laws which are the Administration of Criminal Justice Act.”
He clarified that vital advances have been taken to request the Order of Bench Warrant and documented an application to Stay the Execution of the Order.
Mr Chukwuma had been blamed for modifying freedom records to a delivery Line, which was utilized as security to acquire a credit of N2.4 billion from Guaranty Trust Bank Plc to clear crude materials, PVC for the generation of the rooftop roof and other imported things.
The case is pending before the Federal High Court, Lagos.
