The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has arraigned a former Governor of Imo State, Ikedi Ohakim, before a FCT High Court sitting at Maitama, for allegedly giving false information against one Chinyere Amuchienwa.

The police alleged that Ohakim who was governor of Imo State from 2007 to 2011, lied that Chinyere Amuchienwa threatened him with a gun and equally made a false claim that he had a plot of land for sale in Lagos State.

Ohakim was equally alleged to have unlawfully used “the name of Raji Fashola as the owner of the purported land situated at Ikeja, Lagos State”.

"That you Ikedi Ohakim on or about the 23rd day of May, 2019 at Asokoro, did unlawfully gave false information against one Chinyere Amuchienwa, that she threatened you with gun knowing it to be false and thereby committed an offence punishable under section 140 of the Penal Code Law of the Northern Nigeria, 1968.

“That you Ikedi Ohakim, on or about the 23rd day of May, 2019, at Asokoro, did unlawfully gave false information against one Chinyere Amuchienwa, that you have a plot of land for sale at Lagos state, knowing it to be false and thereby committed an offence punishable under section 140 of the Penal Code Law of the Northern Nigeria, 1968,” two of the charges read.

The police said Ohakim’s act was punishable under section 140 of the Penal Code Law of the Northern Nigeria, 1968.

On arraignment, Ohakim’s lawyer, Ken Njemanze (SAN), applied for bail.

Ruling on the bail, the presiding judge, Justice Samira Bature, granted Ohakim bail of N10m with one surety in like sum, who resides in the Federal Capital Territory.

The judge gave a stern warning to Ohakim not to interfere or threaten any of the prosecutions’ witnesses.

The case was adjourned to January 25, 2021 for trial.
