0 76

Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu, and a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DIG) of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT), Mr Abba Kyari, on Monday appealed a court order directing them to produce a suspected dead suspect in court, either “dead or alive”.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the duo also filed motions asking the same court, a Jos High Court in Plateau State, which gave the initial order, for its stay of execution.

NAN also reports that Justice Dorcas Agishi, of the Federal High Court, Jos, had ordered the IGP to produce Nanpon Sambo, who was on trial before her for alleged illegal possession of firearms, or face contempt charges.

Justice Agishi ordered that the duo must appear before it on December 9 and explain why they should not be jailed for gross contempt of court.

The duo, who did not appear in person, filed an appeal and a motion on notice, asking for a stay of execution of the earlier order for the production of Sambo “dead or alive”.
