BREAKING: Judge orders the arrest of Runsewe, the DG who despises Bobrisky

Justice Jude Okeke of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), sentenced the Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Olusegun Runsewe, to prison.

He gave the order while ruling on a motion drawn from a suit filed by Ummakalif Limited against the Minister of the FCT; Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA); DG of NCAC, and the Minister for Culture and Tourism, as the first, second, third and fourth defendants respectively.

In the motion, the claimant sought an order of the court committing Runsewe to prison for contempt of court order made on December 15, 2017.

Justice Okeke described Runsewe’s action as 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.

He ordered the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to arrest Runsewe with immediate effect and hand him over to the NCS pending when he retraces his steps.

One will recall Bobrisky and Runsewe had a moment where both parties had various confrontations. One significant moment was when Bobrisky wanted to celebrate his birthday in Lagos but Police officers stopped the event from holding.
