Justice Olusola Williams of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos, on Wednesday, ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to produce the chairman of Innosson Motors Limited, Innocent Chukwuma in court for arraignment.

Justice Williams made the order following the absence of Chukwuma in court to face forgery charges preferred against him by the EFCC.

The judge said: “I believe it is the job of the prosecution to bring the defendant to court. The judge is just to make an order that he should appear in court. But we cannot enforce the order. The responsibility of enforcing the order still lies on the EFCC to make sure he is in court.”

Innoson had on six occasions failed to appear before Justice Mojisola Dada of same court.

The development made Justice Dada declare him wanted following the failure of the Commission to produce him in court.

Justice Dada later withdrew from Innoson’s trial on the recommendation of the National Judicial Council (NJC) following a February 12 petition against her by the businessman.

The matter was subsequently re-assigned to Justice Williams. (The Nation)
