Request for Wike’s Incarceration Made by Claimant at Abuja High Court

Within a case at the Abuja High Court, a claimant has urged for the imprisonment of the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, as well as the Director of the Federal Capital Development Authority, Mukhtar Galadima. This request is due to allegations of the two officials disobeying court orders.

The lawsuit (No. FCT / HC/1718/2019) was brought by claimant Mac-Jeam International Enterprises Limited against defendants Toub Associates Limited and Theophilus Ubani. In addition to these defendants, Wike and the FCT Authority, represented by Galadima, were also named as parties in the legal action.

In a legal document titled “Notice of the Consequences of Disobedience to Court,” the defendants were expressly cautioned to comply with the court’s directives.

Furthermore, in another legal notification, the defendants were informed that they must justify why an order of attachment should not be issued, as per Order IX, Rule 13 of the Sheriffs and Civil Process Act, CAP. 551 LFN, 2024.

As the proceedings moved forward, the applicants are anticipated to file a petition to the court seeking “an order for committal to prison of the 3rd and 4th defendants/contemnors, embodied by Nyesom Wike and Mukhtar Galadima, for failing to obey the court order issued on the 18th day of October 2023 which forbade them from interfering with this matter until the motion on notice is heard and resolved.”

The essence of the issue stems from demolitions that occurred in Abuja.
