Court Remands APGA Leader, Njoku in Suleja Prison | Daily Report Nigeria

A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Bwari Area Council of Abuja has ordered that a factional leader of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Edozie Njoku and one Chukwuemeka Nwoga be remanded in Suleja Correctional Centre in Niger State for alleged forgery.

Justice Mohammed Magudu, in a ruling on Monday, ordered that Njoku and his co-defendant, Chukwuemeka Nwoga be remanded in the Suleja prison in Niger State until November 30 when he would rule on their bail application.

Their lawyer, Panam Ntui had argued their bail application shortly after they pleaded not guilty to a 14-count charge filed in the name of the Inspector General of Police (IGP).

Prosecuting lawyer, Rimamsomte Ezekiel, objected to the bail application, arguing that the offences with which the defendants were charged are not minor, noting that some attract a maximum of 14 years imprisonment on conviction.
Njoku and Nwoga were accused by the police authorities of forging a supreme court letter which reinstated them as the national chairman and national youth leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA respectively as against the chairmanship of Chief Victor Oye
