The Kaduna State High Court 2 has issued a warrant for arrest against the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Bureau for contempt of court.

The arrest  warrant was issued on Friday  following  a suit no. KAH/KAD/286/2015 between Mallam Nasir el-Rufai and Today’s Publishing Company Limited.

The suit had been pending before the court.

A  warrant form obtained by Our Correspondent directed the police  to  arrest the CCB  boss  and produce him before the court reconvenes on February 13, 2019.

Today Publishing Company, publisher of The Union Newspapers,  had filed  an application requesting the court to subpoena  the CCB chair to produce  the governor’s asset declaration in the  court.

The presiding judge, Justice Mario Mohammed,    granted the approval based on the application filed by counsel  for  The Union Newspapers, J.N. Egwuonwu (SAN), during the continuation of defence  at  the previous sitting.

Egwuonwu, represented by Hiifan  Abuul,  had written an application to the court to subpoena the  CCB to tender the asset declaration of the governor before the court.
