Governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Delta state, Olorogun Barrister Kenneth Gbagi, has accused the state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa and former commissioner for justice, Mr. Peter Mrakpor, of orchestrating a judgement against him by the state high court IV in Warri.
Gbagi, in a statement he personally wrote and signed on Monday July 18, 2022 and made available to journalists, alleged that the three matters filed by the plaintiffs were done with forged documentation and false proof as allegedly put together by Governor Okowa and Peter Mrakpor who was allegedly given the contract to demarket him because he was too powerful and popular.
Part of the statement reads:
“My attention has been drawn to a judgment of Delta state high court IV, Warri, finding me guilty falsely.
“Strangely, three matters were filed by the same set of plaintiffs, all with forged documentation and false proof.
“All three cases were concluded by Justice Dolor and judgment was delivered on two before pressure came on Justice Dolor.
“Justice Dolor from information is a pastor and God-fearing man. He refused all the pressure and opted for the safety of his life by transferring the already concluded matter as demanded.
The locus of this matter is Effurun judicial division. The matter later found itself surreptitiously into the hand of Justice Veronica Agboje from Agbor who was a staff of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
“What God has said about anybody must come to pass. The joy is that I have not looted any treasury in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“We have entered an appeal to set aside the paid junk judgment for a competent court and the National Judicial Council, NJC to do justice to this procedure.
There were three judgements, two from Delta state high court and one from the federal high court Abuja.
“Judges must be seen to be doing justice for the public in order for them to be respected.
“I urge my teeming and growing supporters to Ignore this judgement. You cannot demarket what God has marketed.”
