The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has called out Justice O.A Nwabunike of the Anambra state High Court, for, again refusing to release the case file as well as copies of his judgment on Senator Ugochukwu Uba Vs PDP & others.

This was contained in a statement signed by the State PDP Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.

“The party describes as vexatious that, upon resumption of court activities today Thursday, Justice Nwabunike, remained adamant in withholding the documents, all in his desperate bid to  distract the PDP and its candidate, in the Anambra state governorship election, Valentine Ozigbo. 

“The party asserts that the deviltries of the judge, in seizing the documents is aimed at frustrating the notices of appeal filed by the PDP and her candidate against his aberrant judgment, knowing that such black-market judgement cannot stand in appeal. 

 “Our party cautions Justice Nwabunike not to continue to test the will of the generality of the people of Anambra, whose mandate, being expressed in our candidate, Valentine Ozigbo, is being undermined, as such may trigger serious crisis in the state,” part of the release states.

According to Kola, “it is indeed indefensible, that a court judge is bent on causing crisis in Anambra state and we call on Nigerians and the people of Anambra to hold Justice Nwabunike directly responsible should there be any breakdown of law and order in the state. 

“In any case, the PDP asserts that it will not be deterred or distracted by Justice Nwabunike and an individual, who did not even participate in our primary, as they cannot stop the people of Anambra state and our candidate, Valentine Ozigbo, from emerging victorious in the election”.
