Dr Ifeanyi Ubah, MD, Capital Oil& Gas
A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, Thursday morning has ordered the Department of State Service, (DSS) to release the Managing Director of Capital Oil and Gas, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah within 48 hours.
Ubah was arrested and detained by the elite force for weeks now for what it described as theft and sell of fuel valued at over N11billion stored in his tank farm by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
The Capital oil boss who lawyers and supporters, defied heavy down pour in Lagos today to be in court had gone to court to challenge his continued detention without trial.
The trial judge, Justice Mohammed in a 100 page judgment, ordered the DSS to release Ubah, since it has failed to file formal charges against him.
.The judge also lashed at 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.
