ICPC

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Tuesday adjourned the suit filed by Pinnacle Communications Ltd (PCL) against the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) to November 6, 2019, for hearing.

In the suit marked, FHC/ABJ/CS/779/18, Pinnacle wants the court to order ICPC to pay it the sum of N1 billion for unlawfully withholding its money domiciled in Zenith bank without a valid court order.

The matter slated for hearing yesterday, could not hold due to the absence of the judge, Justice Taiwo Taiwo, who was said to be away for an official assignment.

Pinnacle Communications, in the suit dated 23rd July 2018, seeks, “An order for the payment of One billion naira as general, exemplary and punitive damages against the defendants for their unlawful and illegal act.”
