Must read

A Lagos Federal High Court, has given the Department of State Service, DSS, a 48-hours ultimatum to release detained Managing Director of Capital Oil and Gas, Ifeanyi Ubah.

Recall that Ubah was arrested by the secret police over an alleged fraudulent oil deal with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.

In a 100 page judgement, the trial judge, Justice Mohammed, on Thursday ordered the DSS to release Ubah, if it fails to file a charge against the oil magnate.

The judge also lashed out at the secret police over its claim that that Ubah was arrested in Abuja while he was arrested in Lagos and flown to Abuja where he is currently in detention.
