How Police Fail To Show Up In Court In Ngbede Case

The matter was postponed until Friday, August 26, 2022 since the Commissioner of Police was not present at the court’s most recent session on August 19th, 2022.

In the lawsuit brought by Sir John Ngbede, the Commissioner against the University of Jos and the deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Benue State, the Commissioner of Police for the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Command, did not appear at the Magistrate Court in Bwari.

On July 26,2022, the Magistrate Court in Bwari issued a ruling on an ex parte motion that had been brought by the Commissioner of Police through Police Prosecutor Abdurasheed Sidi, ordering the University of Jos to disclose the entry-level credentials that John Ngbede had used to be accepted into the institution.

In order to aid the Police investigation, it also mandated that the University make John Ngbede’s academic records and transcripts public.

Ngbede filed a motion on notice to vacate the Order of July 26, 2022 in his response to the lawsuit through his attorney, Joseph Oche, arguing that the Bwari Magistrate Court lacked the necessary jurisdiction to make the Order of July 26, 2022 because the University of Jos is a Federal Government Institution and only a Federal High Court has the authority to decide any cases involving it.

Additionally, he emphasized how the Order of July 26, 2022 was gained through deceit, malice, suppression of facts, lack of jurisdiction, and court misdirection.

He continued by saying that the order of July 26, 2022 lacks any legal or factual support.

The matter was postponed until Friday, August 26, 2022 since the Commissioner of Police was not present at the court’s most recent session on August 19th, 2022.

The Police prosecutor was once more not present in court when the case was discussed on Friday, August 26,2022.

Ngbede’s attorney, Joseph Oche, submitted a request to the court on August 9, 2022, asking for permission to withdraw his motion.

His application was approved by Taribo Jim, the presiding magistrate.

In a similar incident, John Ngbede has brought Abdulrasheed Sidi, the Police Prosecutor in case/motion No:MT/170/2022, the Commissioner of Police, Taribo Jim, and the Presiding Magistrate of the Bwari Magistrate Court before an FCT High Court in Maitama.

The University of Jos has also entered into the lawsuit.

In case/motion No. MT/170/2022, the PDP deputy governorship candidate is requesting an order from the court providing permission to begin an application for judicial review or an order or certiori to nullify all ongoing processes.

In addition, he is requesting, among other Orders, a stay of the motion’s proceedings in motion No. MT/170/2022 before the Magistrate Court of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, holding at Bwari, pending the outcome of the motion’s substantive Originating Application.

The University of Jos has also entered into the lawsuit.

The suit’s deadline has been set for August 31, 2022.
