SON Drags Manufacturer, Mr. Benjamin Nwaizu, MD Dand K Golden City Investment Limited to Court In Anambra

www.odogwublog.com reports that the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON), Wednesday dragged one Mr. Benjamin Nwaizu, MD Dand K Golden City Investment Limited of the manufacturers in Onitsha, Anambra state, Km 3 Onitsha-Owerre Road Onitsha to court over alleged manufacturing of fake products.

When the matter came up at the Federal High Court yesterday in Awka, presided over by Justice I.B Gafai, the defendant was refused bail, but was remanded in prison custody till next week Tuesday.

Mr. Benjamin Nwaizu pleaded not guilty to the four count charges read against him by the court.

The presiding judge, I.B Gafai, adjourned the matter for Tuesday next week, but he told the counsels to the plaintiff (SON) and defendants to file all their motions on the charges to be taken on the day.

SON’s team of lawyers was represented by Emeka Etiaba (SAN), while Chike Onyali led the defendant’s team.

However, Etiaba left the matter to be handled by the Attorney General of the federation, represented by J.A Olofindare because the fiat applied for by the SON had not been signed.

The defendant was arrested on Sunday on his way to church by the Department of State Service (DSS) because he was alleged to have evaded service.

After hearing from both sides, the Presiding Judge asked that he be served to enable him look into the matter as their bail application would be meaningless if there were no charges read against him in his court.
