A Kaduna state high court on Friday issued a warrant of arrest against Muhammed Isah, chairman of Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

The warrant of arrest was issued by Mario Mohammed, a judge, after the chairman ignored several summons by the court in a suit between Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state, and Today’s publishing Company Limited, and one other.

A warrant form obtained directed the police and to arrest the CCB chairman and produce him before the court on February 13, 2019.

Earlier, Today Publishing company, the publisher of The Union Newspapers had filed application requesting the court to subpoena CCB chairman to produce assets declaration of el-Rufai in court after several failed efforts it made to obtain it from the CCB.

Mohammed granted the approval based on the application filed by J.N. Egwuonwu (SAN), counsel to The Union Newspapers, during the continuation of defence at a previous sitting.

Egwuonwu represented by Hiifan Andrew Abuul had written an application to the court to subpoena CCB to tender the asset declaration of the governor before the court.

The governor had gone to the court over a report carried by the newspaper in which it allegedly stated that he had declared N90 billion in his CCB assets declaration form.
