An FCT High Court sitting in Gudu has remanded a debarred lawyer,  Emeka Ephraim Ugwuonye, in Kuje prison pending consideration of his bail application on Jan. 10, 2019.

Justice Modupe Osho-Adebiyi, remanded Ugwuonye on Thursday following his arraignment by the Nigeria Police on a 10-count charge bordering on complicity in a murder case involving late Mrs Charity Aiyedogbon.

The police alleged that the defendant collected money from family members, associates and friends of the deceased and distorted facts by alluding that the husband was responsible for the death.

According to the police, Ugwuonye used his social media account, code-named, “Due Process Advocate” to dish out injurious falsehood, incite the public and publish hate speeches suggesting that Mr David Aiyedogbon killed his wife.

The defendant was also accused of impersonation, having been debarred from the legal profession as well as deliberately giving false information about the suspects that had confessed to committing the crime while in police custody.

The police alleged that he led the public to believing that the suspects were tortured and forced to confess, without justification, with the aim of misleading policemen in the cause of investigation.

Ugwuonye, however, denied all the charges following which the prosecuting counsel, Mr Edwin Ochayi, requested for a date for the police to assemble witnesses in order to prove their case.

Counsel to Ugwuonye, Mr Ifeanyi Chukwu informed the court that he had filed a bail application on behalf of his client and that he served same on the complainant on Dec. 13.

Osho-Adebiyi adjourned the matter until Jan. 10, 2019 for argument on the bail application.
