Court sends Zamfara commissioner, Magayaki to prison
Ibrahim Magayaki, the Zamfara state Commissioner for Agriculture and Natural Resources, has been remanded in the Correctional Centre in Gusau for disobeying a court order.
Justice Bello Shinkafi of the Zamfara State High Court, Gusau, gave the verdict on Monday.
He said the court relied on the provisions of Section 6 of the Penal Code Law following disobedience of a court order by the commissioner.
Justice Shinkafi said the commissioner disrespected the court order in a suit between the Zamfara government and Dumbulum investment.
According to him, Dumbulum Investment secured a court approval to attach some of the state government movable properties including tractors.
The judge said that the Agriculture commissioner defied the court order sold some of the tractor parts already attached by the court.
