Court Orders Arrest Of Ex- Plateau Speaker Over Dud Cheque

A Jos High Court on Monday issued a bench warrant for the arrest of a former Speaker of Plateau House of Assembly, Mr John Dabwan.

Justice Felomina Lot gave the order after revoking bail he granted Dabwan in a case of issuance of a dud cheque in the sum of N3.8 million.

The former speaker allegedly issued the cheque to a Jos-based businessman, Mr Theophilus Omhagie.

“The accused was granted bail in this case based on self-recognition, but he has failed to show up or send any representative.

“His refusal to come to court in this matter goes to show that the accused has no respect or regard for the court; it is indeed a slap on this honourable court.

“I hereby revoke the bail earlier granted to him and order for his immediate arrest and hand over to the nearest police station,’’ Lot said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the prosecution had submitted that  Omhagie offered services to Dabwan in 2016.
