Justice Othman Musa issued the arrest warrant after lawyer for the prosecution, Osuebeni Akposinimingha complained of difficulty in getting Wigwe and others to attend court to answer charges pending against them.

The Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) had last week filed a four-count charge marked CR/32/2017 against Wigwe and others, following which the court fixed Thursday for their arraignment.

Wigwe, Mrs. Adogu and the bank are accused among others, of refusing to unfreeze some accounts belonging to two customers – Blaid Construction Limited and Blaid Properties Limited, even after a court order and a directive to that effect from the ICPC.

At the Thursday’s proceedings, Akposinimingha said, although it was the prosecution’s responsibility to produce the defendants in court for arraignment, the prosecution was having constraints producing the defendants.
