Innoson Motors Chairman declared wanted by the court

A Special Offences Court Sitting in Ikeja, Lagos, has declared the Chairman of Innoson Motors Nig Ltd, Innocent Chukwuma, wanted following his continuous refusal to attend court proceedings for his alleged fraud trial.

Justice Mojisola Dada issued the bench warrant for his arrest after he failed to appear in court for his arraignment for the fifth time.

Mr Chukwuma who is standing trial in a matter between his company and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had previously failed to make an appearance in court for his arraignment on Jan. 17, Feb. 9, March 14 and April 25.

He was arraigned alongside his company for allegedly forging documents to facilitate the clearing of some goods at the port.

Specifically, he was alleged to have forged documents purportedly emanating from GTB Bank.


The issue, however, degenerated as Innoson alleged victimization and harassment by the EFCC and GTB Bank.

During the proceedings of March 14, it was revealed that Innoson had petitioned the National Judicial Council (NJC) over Justice Mojisola Dada, the judge trying the case.

At today’s proceedings, the EFCC Counsel, Anselem Ozioko said, “this appears to be the fifth time this matter is coming up before your Lordship for arraignment.

In granting Ozioko’s request, Justice Dada said, “The second defendant is hereby declared wanted and the case adjourned until June 22 for possible arraignment.”
