Again, Court Orders Police To Produce Rivers APC Campaign DG

A high court sitting in Port Harcourt on Thursday issued an order directing the Rivers State Police commissioner to produce the state All Progressives Congress(APC) campaign Director -General, Mr Chidi Lloyd, at the next hearing.

 

The trial judge, Justice Chinwendu Nworgu gave the charge following Lloyd's absence from court to take plea on the three count charges of murder, disruption of public peace, and assault with intent to wound.

 

Counsel to the defendant, Prince Onyenkwere Azunda said the defendant had filed an appeal to the court on the matter, and asked the court to adjourn the case pending the decision of the court of appeal.

 

Counsel to the state government, Godwin Obla a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), insisted that Lloyd was taking the court for granted by his absence.

 

He stressed that counsel to Lloyd would have filed a formal application to the court seeking to adjourn the case.

 

Obla stated that the attitude of Lloyd to stay away from court was a court contempt.

 

"Staying away from the court is a contempt of court order. The Supreme Court of Nigeria has reinforced obedience to court order and the implications of failure to cooperate to court orders can amount to contempt."

 

Counsel to the defendant, Prince Azunda in his argument stated that the state should be the ones to produce Lloyd because of the order given by the police to arrest and bring him to court on Thursday. 

 

The judge ruled that the court would proceed with the prosecution of the matter as filing of an appeal in did not amount to staying of proceedings. He stressed on the need to obey court orders.
