Federal High Courts Denies Issuing An Injunction To Stop Diezani's House Of Reps Probe

The Federal High Court in Abuja, presided over by Justice Ahmed Muhammed has denied claims by the House of Representatives that it issued an order stopping the investigation of Petroleum Resources Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke over her alleged spending of ten billion naira to charter a private jet.

The visible angry judge expressed shock at media reports that he issued such injunction and subsequently order the House of Representatives to appear before the court on May five to set the records straight.

Counsels to the National Assembly and the Minister as well as the NNPC told the court that they were not behind the false information.

You may recall that the spokesman of the House, Zakari Muhammed in a press statement made available to newsmen alleged that the legislatures had received a court order stopping if from probing the Minister.
