Judge Who Ordered Hope Uzodinma’s Arrest Is Dead

The Abuja judge, who ordered the arrest and production of the Imo governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Hope Uzodinma, has died.

Judge Abdulwahab Mohammed of the Grade 1 Area Court, Kubwa, Abuja, The Nation reports, died on Saturday at the National Hospital, Abuja.

The official said the late judge had his tooth extracted at the Kubwa General Hospital but suffered complications thereafter.

It was learnt the judge has had frequent visits to the hospital to address the complications until he suddenly slumped last Saturday and had to be rushed to the National Hospital.

The 32-year-old Mohammed, who was from Edo State, is said to have left behind a pregnant wife.

In a letter in October this year, the late judge referred the case of criminal complaint, made against Uzodinma, a serving Senator, representing Orlu District, Imo State, to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for investigation and appropriate action.

Mohammed resorted to referring the case to the EFCC following Uzodinma’s alleged consistent failure to attend court to answer to the complaint made against him and his firms by Chitex Ventures Ltd and Chima Akuzie, who claimed that the Senator issued them a N200 million UBA dud (bounced cheque).

When the case came up again on October 29, Uzodinma was still absent in court, following which Judge Muhammad elected to refer the case to the EFCC for investigation and further necessary actions.

Lawyer to the complainant in N200m dud cheque case, Oluwatosin Ojaomo said he heard about the news of the judge’s death and was shocked that such a young a brilliant man could die so suddenly.
