Court orders continued detention of Ifeanyi Ubah for 14 days

A  Federal High Court, Abuja, has granted a request by the State Security Service, SSS, to keep the chairman, Capital Oil and Gas Ltd, Ifeanyi Ubah, in custody for another 14 days pending the completion of its investigation of the charges against him.

Efforts by Mr. Ubah’s counsel to have the Lagos division of the court to vacate the order also failed on Friday as the court said it would not make an order in the face of a “conflict situation”.

Justice Y. Halilu of the Federal High Court, Abuja, gave the order for Mr. Ubah’s continued detention following a motion exparte filed on May 10 together with an affidavit in support and deposed to by one G.O.A Agbadua, a senior legal officer with the SSS.

The Lagos division of the Federal High Court had on Tuesday ordered the secret police to produce Mr. Ubah in court on Friday.

The SSS on Friday took Mr. Ubah into custody on allegations of “economic sabotage” and diversion of petroleum products to the tune of N11 billion.

The petroleum products were stored by NNPC Retail in Capital Oil’s tank farm in Lagos under a throughput agreement but went missing under controversial circumstances.
