The Family of Honourable Nze Chidi Duru, has described the recent arrest of his Principal by the EFCC as illegal and malicious.
In a statement released and signed on behalf of the Nze-Duru family by Osita Ogbuagu Jr., he said the arrest warranted to a blatant disregard for rule of law.
The statement read in part ; In the usual practice of persecution and not prosecution of Hon. Nze Chidi Duru by the EFCC, without a warrant of arrest at night on
4th February, 2017, at an ungodly hour picked him up in an attempt to embarrass him and to blatantly disregard his good person.
The intention is to charge him on a matter which the EFCC Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu in a signed letter withdrew on 7th September 2016 stating that Chidi Duru is a good man who has committed no crime, this was after extensive investigations were carried out on his person.
Is this what our beloved country Nigeria, Africa’s pride and giant has turned into, no respect or regard for the rule of law?
Honourable Nze Chidi Duru was a member of the House of Representatives (1999-2007). He is widely acknowledged for his contribution to the Pension Act, the present day GSM Policy.
