The leadership of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) has alerted Justice Akintunde Savage of Ikeja High Court not to allow himself to be misled into promoting the miscarriage of justice by acting on orchestrated lies fed him through an application reportedly filed by the former Chairman of Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) Chapter , Prince Bangbala Adewusi.

According to the association, the exparte motion granted to Adewusi to remain in office was obtained without due process in view of the fact that the application presented before the Justice reek of falsehood and not in tandem with reality, and that the judge acted upon such faulty and misleading application to granting Adewusi the exparte motion.

ANLCA national officers mentioned in print urged the judge to vacate the Court order and to preserve his professional integrity and name from being rubbished so cheaply by power mongers, who only seek their personal interests irrespective of the national good.

The members explained that the exparte order granted Adewusi which restrains the Board of Trustees (BoT) and National Executive Committee (NECOM) from ejecting him out of office is unqualified and incompetent based on the overall facts of the case.

The association further explained that the exparte order is incompetent in view of a valid ruling by Justice Ogundare of the Badagry High Court that declared Tope Akindele as the rightful occupier of the office having also declared him winner of the chapter election conducted in 2019.

It notes that strangely, rather than the NECOM of that time to adhere to the ruling of the Badagry Court went ahead to conduct another kangaroo election in which the NECOM for own reason declared Adewusi winner and foisted him in the office, despite that his co-contestant, Balogun Ashiru obtained a court judgment declaring him the winner of the said election.

It urged Justice savage to also take note of the fact that Adewusi who claimed to have vacated the Badagry High Court judgment has no locus to contemplate such since he was not a party to the case in any material circumstances.

According to the association, running to Justice Savage to secure an exparte motion is an abuse of court process which the learned judge must distance himself from as an unbiased minister in the temple of justice.

ANLCA had called on the revered Justice to either reverse his order or excuse himself from the case to avoid creating chaos in the association, and more than that, to shun actions that will expose the judicial system into public oprobium.
