‘No court demanded my arrest’ – Senator Andy Uba

Published

on


The Senator representing Anambra South, Senator Andy Uba has reacted to media reports that a Federal High Court in FCT Abuja had issued an order of arrest against him.

The federal lawmaker also accused one Victor Uwajeh of “sponsoring the mischievous and malicious propaganda” to tarnish his image.

In a statement issued at the weekend by his media team, Uba described the report of his arrest as misleading.

He added that the court under Justice Binta Nyako declined jurisdiction in the case, but instead ordered that the Attorney General of the Federation be served.

According to the court proceeding, Justice Nyako requested that the Anti-Corruption and Integrity Forum (ACIF) serve the Attorney General first before presenting the case in her court.

“It is important to note that ACIF is a group used several times by Uwajeh in perpetrating his blackmail and extortion of money from his victims,” the statement said.

“According to investigation, Uwajeh has no certificate or document to back-up his claim as a UK private investigator or anywhere in the World as claimed by him. He is currently standing trial on a four count charge bothering on fraud, impersonation and forgery.

“Uwajeh who lives and survives on blackmailing, also attempted to swindle Senator Uba and so many others. He is currently into hiding after being investigated by the police over forgery, theft, documents falsification and was eventually charged to court,” it added.
