Judge Orders NCAC Director General To Be Sent To Prison...

Justice Jude Okeke of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Thursday, sentenced the Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Olusegun Runsewe,to prison.

He gave the order while ruling on a motion drawn from a suit filed by Ummakalif Limited against the Minister of the FCT; Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA); DG of NCAC, and the Minister for Culture and Tourism, as the first, second, third and fourth defendants respectively.
In the motion, the claimant sought an order of the court committing Runsewe to prison for contempt of court order made on December 15, 2017.

Justice Okeke described Runsewe’s action as contemptuous, adding that committing him to the custody of the Nigerian Correctional Services (NCS) would serve as a deterrent to others who abuse office and disobey court orders with disdain.

He ordered the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to arrest Runsewe with immediate effect and hand him over to the NCS pending when he retraces his steps.


  1. Sent to jail for how long?
    Is it the type they drive him in black maria in the afternoon and
    Drive him out in limousine at night?
    This administration should stop playing with the intelligence of Nigerians.

    1. Shut up! No one can please you pessimist. Always see wring in everything.

  2. Prison sentence without term or length of stay is that one prison?
