The Commissioner of Police, Imo State, Mr. Taiwo Lakanu, has been duly served with an order of Owerri Federal High Court to arrest two serving commissioners and four other officials of Imo State government and brought to the court, says Barr.

This comes shortly after the Imo CP denied being served with the Order of arrest of the affected government officials for contempt.

According to an ‘Affidavit of Service’ made available to newsmen on Wednesday, dated 20th March 2017, deposed by the court bailiff, Nweke Jude Obinna, the Imo Police chief was served on Friday(17-03-17) at exactly 12:44pm and was signed for and received by one Corporal Njoku M serving in Imo CP’s office.

Barr. Obi expressed that with the evidence of service, Mr. Lakanu under the law, has the duty to diligently discharge his duties as the Commissioner of Police, Imo State, by arresting the contemnors and brought them to the court on May 2, 2017.

It could be recalled that Justice Lewis Allagoa, of the Federal High Court, Owerri, had on March 13, issued a warrant of arrest on some government officials on Suit No FHC/OW/CS/133/2016 between Ex-interior Minister, Captain Emmanuel Iheanacho and Imo State Government over the demolition of a property located at Orlu road, Owerri.
