The Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture, Olusegun Runsewe, Thursday got a bitter new year gift when he was sent to prison by a high court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
Delivering the verdict, the court, presided over by Justice Jude Okeke, ordered the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, to immediately arrest Runsewe and detain him in correctional services over contempt of an order of the court on his part.
The order followed a suit filed by Ummakalif Limited against the minister of the FCT, the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) and Runwese.
Justice Okeke said that he will remain in prison until he shows penitence, having retraced his wrong steps.
Referring to Runwese’s act as highly contemptuous, Justice Okeke, said that he will remain in prison until he shows penitence, having retraced his wrong steps
