Kano PDP: Court warns Wada Sagagi of contempt
By Baba Aminu
A Federal High Court sitting in Kano has served notice of consequences of disobedience to order of court on contemnor/respondent, Shehu Wada Sagagi, for parading himself as chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano.
SOLACEBASE had reported that the Caretaker Committee of the People’s Democratic Party, Kano State chapter, on Saturday had accused the former chairman of the dissolved state executives, Shehu Sagagi, of flouting court order by still parading himself as the caretaker chairman.
The PDP caretaker committee secretary, Bala Aliyu, made the disclosure in Kano , while briefing newsmen on current developments in the Kano PDP, insisting that there was no faction in the party.
He said the committee has filed a petition to the police and the Department of State Services for criminal impersonation against Sagagi’s action, which was capable of resulting in a breach of peace in Kano State.
The PDP had earlier dragged Shehu Wada Sagagi, Bashir Tanko Mohammed, Ali Tijjani Ansaru Gambo Jamil Abba to court, in which judgement was granted in favour of the applicant, PDP.
Hence in a re suit: PDP as applicant/judgement creditor versus Shehu Wada Sagagai, respondent/contemnor , the federal high court on January 9th, 2023 warned that Sagagi should desist from parading himself as the chairman, hence he will be guilty of contempt of court and will be liable to be committed to prison.
The notice read: ‘’Take Notice that unless you obey the directions contained in this order of the Court of Appeal , to wit:’’ Accordingly the judgement of the trial court in suit No: FHC/ABJ/CS/393/2022 delivered on 25/05/2022 by Taiwo O. Taiwo .J is hereby set aside and the suit FHC/ABJ/CS/393/2022 filed on the 25/032022 is hereby struck out.’’
