Police unaware of committal order against Bawa – Spokesman

THE Police say it is unaware that the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been ordered to be remanded in prison.

Police spokesman, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, told The Guardian today

Responding, Adejobi simply said: “We are not aware.”

An Abuja High Court sitting in Maitama has ordered that the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, be committed to prison over contempt of court.

Justice Chizoba N. Oji also directed the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to ensure the committal order is executed.

Oji gave the order on October 28, but a certified true copy was sighted yesterday in the motion on notice brought before the court by Air Vice Marshal (AVM) Rufus Adeniyi Ojuawo against the Federal Government of Nigeria, in a motion marked FCT/HC/M/52/2021, in the suit with the number FCT/HC/CR/184/2016.
