The Chairman/Managing Director of Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing (IVM), Chief Innocent Chukwuma, on Thursday described the order by Justice Mojisola Dada of a Lagos State High Court, Ikeja declaring him wanted as not only done in bad faith but was aimed at embarrassing his personality.
The automobile manufacturer, who made his feelings known in a press statement issued by the Head, Corporate Communications, Innoson Group Cornel Osigwe, insisted that he had remained a law abiding citizen and was never afraid of being arraigned.
He said in a statement, “I have been briefed by my lawyers that Justice Mojisola Dada of Lagos State High Court Ikeja granted the oral plea of counsel to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to declare me wanted because of my failure to appear before the court today. I have expressly stated before that I am not afraid of arraignment but must be arraigned through due process of the law.
“Declaring me wanted was done in bad faith and is simply to embarrass my personality, defame me and malign my character aimed to distract me from my daily activities in ensuring that Innoson Vehicles continue to produce durable made in Nigeria vehicles.
