Federal High Court Abuja has fixed October 25 for judgement in a suit filed by Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa against the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC), Department of State Services (DSS) and the Nigerian Police Force.
Bulkachuwa is accusing the ICPC, DSS and others of colluding with his political enemies to harass him following his valedictory comment on the floor of the Senate, which he said his political enemies continued to misrepresent.
The ex-lawmaker, who is the husband of the immediate-past President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, insisted he had never influenced his wife’s handling of some case while she was the president of the Court of Appeal.
Counsel to the Attorney General Oyin Koleoso, faulted the plaintiff’s argument, contending that he no longer had any immunity from arrest and prosecution because he had ceased to be a Senator.
After listening to both parties, Justice Inyang Ekwo subsequently Adjourned the suit to October 25 for Judgement.
