High Court Okays Suit for Amaechi's Arrest, Sacking

The federal high court in Abuja has given the Kingdom Human Rights Foundation a go-ahed to commence its suit seeking an order for the arrest of Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, and Ogbonnaya Onu, the Science and Technology Minister over recent allegations levelled against them by two Justices of the Supreme Court.

Justices Sylvester Ngwuta and Inyang Okoro, both of the Supreme Court, had accused Amaechi and Onu of attempts to influence court decisions in some election cases between 2015 and 2016.

The suit wants the court to order the Department of State Service and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to “perform their statutory obligation” by immediately arresting and prosecuting the two ministers.

It also wants President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the duo.
