A police officer serving under Benue state Command, Emmanuel Okwubi has called on Governor Samuel Ortom, The Chief Judge of Benue state and other concerned Nigerians to come to his aid over what he describes
as forceful and intimidating attempt to take over his landed property by the wife of former commissioner of Works and Housing, Mrs.Becky Ade Aliegba, even as Benue State High Court sitting at Court
5, Makurdi recently issued bench warrant of arrest against Becky for disobeying court order to appear before the law court despite
Narrating his sympathetic experience in the hand of Aliegba’s wife during and after the executions of the court judgment which ordered his eviction from his home, Emmanuel Okwubi saying the decision of the court has posed more hardship that now made him and his family to become homeless prompted the decision to call on the listening Governor of Benue State, Dr. Samuel Ortom, Chief Judge of the State
and other agencies to save him from difficulties and embarrassments he is
currently facing which was caused by Mrs Aleigba who went behind him to obtain a default judgment in her favour and which judgment is now a subject of appeal before the court of appeal Makurdi Division.
While calling for Justice, Emmanuel further disclosed that both his life and that of his job is under threat from the Director Center for Gender Studies, Benue State University, Becky Ade Aliegba.
‘‘I believe so much in judicial system of this country. I call on Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom as a listening leader and Chief judge of Benue State to redeem me from this injustice perfected by Becky Aliegba.’’
Disclosing what transpired before the judgment, the young police Officer said Becky who has agreed earlier to instruct his Lawyer to withdraw the matter from the court to ensure that the issue is resolved amicably unknown to him was pursuing the case even as he did not receive notices of hearing from the court till default judgment
was entered and executed against him. The ruling of the court shows that, the defendants in matter Emmanuel Okwubi failed to challenge the evidence brought before the court by the plaintiff.
Meanwhile, the State High Court sitting in Makurdi the State Capital has recently issued a bench warrant of arrest against Becky Ade Aliegba, for disobeying court order to be appearing at the sitting
until the proceeding of case between her and Emmanuel Egwu and Anthony
Oduro is been determined. Hon. Justice of High Court 5, Justice S.O Itodo asked the Benue State police Command to immediately execute the arrest of Becky without delay.
Mrs. Aliegba was also dragged to court
for an attempt to forcefully take over parcel of land belonging to the plaintiffs who have a pending contempt proceeding. plaintiffs also bought the said land from David Tersoo Akosu the same vendor to CPL Emmanuel Okwubi,the land which was located behind Mount Carmel’s Secondary School Tser-Kave community, Naka Road makurdi .
During the sitting, Counsel to the plaintiff Mrs. Idikwu draws the attention of the presiding Judge to the continue desperate absent of the defendants at proceeding since the beginning of the hearing despite several invitations. Barr. Mrs Idikwu further reminds the Hon. Justice S.O Itodo of the last adjournment order that mandated the
defendant in contempt proceeding (Becky) to continue to appear until the proceeding is determined. She consequently applied for a bench warrant which the court granted.
It would be recalled that the said land in contention was sold to late father of David Tersoo Akosu in 2003 by Terser Kindiwa Abicha who has even admitted that the parcel of land is truly belong to the David’s late father and consequently sold the land to Becky Aliegba in 2011 who now lay claim to the parcel of land.
In serial of petition, the plaintiff desperately violates the interlocutory injunction which restrain the respondent from entering or doing any activities on the land pending the determination of the suit.
Several calls put to Becky Aliegba to confirm her stand was abortive as her telephone line was not still reachable as at the time of going to the press.
