Judge Orders Arrest Of EFCC Chairman Bawa For Contempt Of Court

The Kogi State High Court in Lokoja has ordered the arrest and remand of the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, in prison.

Justice Rukayat Ayoola ruled that Bawa should be picked up and remanded in Kuje prison for disobeying a court order.

Ayoola also directed the Inspector General of Police to ensure compliance because the EFCC boss committed contempt of court.

The judge ruled that the EFCC Czar should be remanded for the next 14 days.

In his ruling, the judge granted an application for Bawa to be remanded in prison because he disobeyed a court ruling delivered on November 30, 2022.

The anti-corruption boss was directed to produce Ali Bello, an applicant in a case

Counsel to the applicant, Sumaila Abbas, had dragged Bawa to court for arresting and detaining Bello illegally, with the court ruling in his favour, only for the EFCC to arraign him for alleged money laundering three days after the ruling But, EFCC’s applications for setting aside and stay of execution of the ruling were refused for want of merit.

  1. Let's see if the IGP will comply. No be today dem dey disobey court order na.

    1. Or they will suddenly have some kine sickness and won't obey court order.

  2. Court judgementts and pronouncements are not obeyed under this regime. Ask the IG in 3 weeks why police has not picked the EFCC boss up as the court directed, he will tell you he's yet to get the notification or yet to be briefed.

  3. When see finish don enter work 🙄

  4. Dumb comments from those who knows next to nothing about law & court orders.
    Why is State High Court making orders it can't enforce?
