Court hears N1b suit against ICPC November 6
A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja yesterday adjourned a suit filed by Pinnacle Communications Limited (PCL) against the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) to November 6 for hearing.
Pinnacle Communications in the suit No. FHC/ABJ/CS/779/18 is praying the court to order ICPC to pay it N1billion for unlawfully withholding its money domiciled in Zenith Bank without a valid court order.
The matter was originally slated for hearing yesterday, but it could not hold due to absence of Justice Taiwo Taiwo, who was away on another official assignment.
The amount, if granted, will also serve as exemplary and punitive damages against the defendants in the suit for what the plaintiff described as an unlawful and illegal act.
