A Federal High Court in Kaduna State has issued an arrest warrant for the arrest of the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

The order to arrest the CCB Chairman was issued on Friday following a suit between Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, the Governor of Kaduna State, and Today’s Publishing Company Limited.

For contempt of court, the judge, Justice Mario Mohammed, ordered that the CCB Chairman be arrested and produced before the court on February 13, 2019.

The publishing company through its counsel, J.N. Egwuonwu (SAN), had filed an application seeking for the court to order the CCB boss to produce Governor El-Rufai’s asset declaration in court.
