How Ngwuta acquired 2 passports – NIS

Justice Sylvester Nwali Ngwuta

A senior officer of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) yesterday narrated how suspended Supreme Court Justice Sylvester Ngwuta acquired two valid international passports.

Ngwuta is facing a 16-count charge bordering on use of multiple travel passports, false age declaration, money laundering and other financial crimes filed against him by the federal government’s representatives.

A Deputy Comptroller of Immigration in the Benue State Command, Tanko Nuhu Kutana, said Justice Ngwuta was issued an international passport on Nov 29, 2012 with an expiry date of Nov 29, 2017.

Led in evidence by Olufemi Fatunde, the forensic analyst said the judge complained of the loss of the passport and was issued a new one on April 20, 2016 to expire on April 4, 2021.

He said the DSS recovered both passports from Ngwuta’s house during the raid of October 8, 2016. Under cross examination by the defence counsel, Kanu Agabi (SAN), Kutana admitted that the judge did not interchangeably use the passports, including his diplomatic passport as he earlier claimed in his statement to the DSS.

Agabi applied to tender the earlier statement by the witness which was admitted in evidence. Justice John Tsoho adjourned the case to April 16 for hearing.
