The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Jimoh Abdulkadir Adamu has finally bowed to court and release the passport of Dr. Peter Odili.
The passport of the former Rivers State governor, which was unlawfully confiscated by Immigration on the alleged order of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), was released to Odili in his Abuja residence.
This comes after the agency the Legal Adviser incurred a N2m fine over alleged disobedience to order of court.
NEWSCASTARS.COM gathered that a motion by the Legal Adviser confirming the release of the document directly and personally to Odili has just been sighted by DAILY POST at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
However, Adamu is to appear in court this morning to defend accusations of “professional misconduct” brought against him by the former governor after Justice Iyang Eden Ekwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja, summoned the senior lawyer to appear before him to defend his role in the refusal of his agency to comply with order of his court to release the passport.
A document signed by Odili personally acknowledging receipt of the passport was also sighted.
