APC alleges court order against Amaechi was doctored

Rotimi-Amaechi nBy EMEKA OKONKWO
ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE All Progressives Congress (APC) alleged documents had been forged to push for the Senate to suspend the screening of former governor, Rotimi Amaechi.

It was reported the screening of Amaechi was on Thursday deferred after the inability of the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions to submit its report on a petition against him.

Activist Livingstone Wechie was reported to have obtained a court order restraining the Senate from screening Amaechi.

APC denied this.

“Because we are aware of the desperation of the PDP and Mr. Livingstone Wechie on this matter, we have nonetheless carried out a search at the High Court Registry in Rivers State, and no indication that such Order exists at the High Court of Rivers State,” APC Rivers Publicity Secretary, Chris Finebone, said.

He said this was only possible if “such order is given to Mr. Livingstone WECHIE in the sitting room of a Judge, which we know that no right thinking judicial officer will do so, especially at this time that the National Judicial Council is desirous of sanitizing the Judiciary.”

APC alleged a forgery.

“We hereby give notice to the Directorate of State Security Services and the Nigerian Police to investigate this level of misinformation that is capable of breaching the peace. We urge them to be vigilant and watch for any attempt to forge and criminally alter documentation at the Rivers State High Court Registry.”

Wechie and PDP could not be reached for comment.
