The Federal High Court in Abuja has asked the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to arrest the Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Olusegun Runsewe, with immediate effect and hand him over to the Nigerian Correctional Services (NCS).
According to Justice Jude Okeke who gave the order earlier today while ruling on a motion drawn from a suit filed by Ummakalif Limited Runsewe must be arrested for disobeying its orders released on December 15, 2017.
Justice Okeke who was furious about Runsewe’s action as highly contemptuous, adding that committing him to the custody of the Nigerian Correctional Services (NCS) would serve as a deterrent to others who abuse office and disobey court orders with disdain.
The court also ordered parties in the suit to stay proceedings on every activity concerning the demolition of the Arts and Craft village located in the Central Business District area of the FCT.
Recalls that Runsewe had earlier been in the spotlight for berating Nigerian cross-dresser, Bobrisky whose real name is Idris Okuneye.
