The high court in Kaduna state has on Friday issued a bench warrant against the Code of Conduct Bureau(CCB) chairman for contempt in a case in which the state’s governor, Nasir El-Rufai was alleged to have declared N90 billion in his assets declaration form, Igberetvnews reports.

The warrant was issued by Justice Mario Mohammed after the CCB ignored several summons by the court in a case involving El-Rufai, Today’s publishing Company Limited, and one other.

A warrant form obtained directed that police personnel and authorities should arrest the CCB chairman and produce him before the court on February 13.

Earlier, Today Publishing company, the publisher of The Union Newspapers had filed application requesting the court to subpoena CCB chairman to produce assets declaration of El-Rufai in court after several failed efforts it made to obtain it from the CCB.

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

Egwuonwu represented by Hiifan Andrew Abuul had written application to the court to Subpoena CCB to tender the asset declaration of the governor before the court.

Igberetvnews learnt that the governor had gone to the court over a report carried by the newspaper in which it allegedly stated that he had declared N90 billion in his CCB assets declaration form.
