|Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah :Chairman Capital Oil and Gas|
A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, Thursday morning has ordered the Department of State Service, DSS, to within 48 hours release Managing Director of Capital Oil and Gas, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah who has been detained illegaly since the 5th of May, 2017.
Despite heavy down pour in court today, Ubah’s supporters defied the rain and trouped out en masse to support him.
Trial judge, Justice Mohammed in a 100 page judgment, ordered the DSS to release Dr. Ubah, if it fails to file a charge against him within the next 48hours.
Ubah was arrested by DSS over an alleged oil deal with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.
The court also berated the DSS for lying to the court that Ubah was arrested in Abuja, while from every available evidence, he was arrested in Lagos and flown to Abuja, where he has been detained some weeks.
