A bench warrant has been issued by a Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, Rivers State against a Commander of the Nigerian Navy Pathfinder, Rumuolumeni. Sam Bora.
Bora was accused of failing to present himself before the court and refusing to release an arrested suspect. The Inspector-General of Police (IG), Mohammed Adamu, and his men were ordered to arrest and bring Bora to the court on December 3 to show cause why he should not be disciplined.
This came after the plaintiff’s lawyer, Christian Woke, filed a complaint against Naval officers for arresting his client, Ledumbari Nafiri on the 2nd of August. He reported that the Navy denied him access to his client and rejected a valid court order to release him.
Woke stated that;
“My client was arrested in a commando style when the Naval officers invaded his house, took away his properties and held him incommunicado.
“When the court finally ordered that Nafiri be released, the order was served on Sam Bora, the Commanding Officer of Navy Pathfinder, Rumuolumini, Port Harcourt. But he refused to obey the order and instead transferred Nafiri to Abuja. The same order was served on the Abuja Naval office and they still refused to release him.”
The lawyer also revealed that the warrant was issued against the senior Naval officer because he failed to honor the court’s summons thrice.
