Jonco Pharmaceutical Company Suit Lacks Merit -Says Federal High Court           

The contentious Fundamental Human Rights Suit Filed by Jonco Pharmaceutical Company Ltd, against the Inspector General of Police, IGP, the Police Special Fraud Unit  PSFU , headed by Commissioner of Police, CP Anyasinti Josephine Nneka and her Operatives, has been dismissed for lack of deligent prosecution

Justice I. N. Oweibo of the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos,  dismissed the Fundamental Human Rights Enforcement Suit which was filed by Chief John Njoku of Jonco Pharmaceutical Company against the Inspector-General of Police, Commissioner of Police (PSFU); CP. Anyasinti Josephine Nneka and operatives who investigated the case of fraudulent diversion/conversion valued at Two Hundred and Twenty-Three Thousand, Eight Hundred and Ninety-Six US Dollars and Fifteen Cents ($223,896.15).                       

It would be recalled that the complaint was reported by Gujarat Ligui Pharmaceuticals; a company based in India.

The court concluded that the application of Chief Njoku is without merit and also awarded a cost of Fifty Thousand Naira (N50,000.00) against the Applicant.

The Fundamental Rights Suit is in furtherance to the arrest of Chief Njoku by the Police Special Fraud Unit (PSFU) for offences bordering on fraudulent conversion/diversion of drugs worth Two Hundred and Twenty-Three Thousand, Eight Hundred and Ninety-Six US Dollars and Fifteen Cents ($223,896.15) supplied to his company for distribution/sale by Gujarat Ligui Pharmacaps of India.

Chief John Njoku initially claimed the products expired before landing at the ports but later retracted to blame bad economy and the rise in the United States Dollar for his inability to remit the proceeds of the sale of the products to his Indian partner.
