Recall that recently, Justice Okon Abang ordered for his arrest over a report republished via Igbere TV.
The order followed a publication by Nigerian Concord, claiming the court had concluded plans to jail at all cost, a former Benue governor Gabriel Suswam, who is standing trial over alleged N3.1 billion fraud.
The newspaper had alleged on February 1 that Justice Abang, who is presently presiding over the trial of Suswam, had prior contact with the prosecution team and some All Progressives Congress (APC) officials in respect to the case.
Igbere TV had republished the story on its website the following day February 2, while also giving full credits to the online platform (Nigerian Concord) on whose website the story first appeared.
In an update this morning, Igbere TV in their official facebook page announced the death of it Founder Emeh James.
Emeh left behind his wife and a beautiful daugher. May his soul rest in peace.
Meanwhile, The Federal Government has filed a six count charges against Mr. Obinna Uzoh, his lawyer, Eziafa Samuel Enwedo, for allegedly forging court documents to remove Senator Ifeanyi Ubah from office as the duly elected senator representing Anamabra South Senatorial district.
