Innoson boss: Declaring me wanted is an attempt to embarrass my personality

Chief Innocent Chukwuma, chairman of Innoson Group of Companies, has said that the move by the court to declare him wanted is an attempt to embarrass his personality. He made the comment in a statement issued on Thursday, May 24, Vanguard reports. 

Innoson pointed out that while he is not afraid of being arraigned, it must be carried out through due process of the law. He stated: “I have been briefed by my lawyers that Justice Mojisola Dada of Lagos State High Court Ikeja granted the oral plea of counsel to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to declare me wanted because of my failure to appear before the court today. “I have expressly stated before that I am not afraid of arraignment, but must be arraigned through due process of the law. “It must be noted that I, through my legal counsel, challenged the jurisdiction of the Lagos State High Court to hear the forgery charge filed against me by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on the ground of, inter alia, the charge being an abuse of process. “I filed an application before the court that this present charge is an abuse of process because a similar charge on the same subject matter, transactions and issues is ongoing at the Federal High Court Lagos Division between the same parties, in charge no FHC/l/565c/2015. “The last hearing of the charge at the Federal High Court was this week, May 22nd 2018.”
