A United Kingdom-based private investigator, Victor Uwajeh has initiated a suit against Senator Andy Uba (APC, Anambra) over allegations of refusal to pay a debt of £1.9 million.
Uwajeh’s counsel, Barrister Anthony Agbonlahor told an FCT High Court sitting in Apo that Uba engaged his client’s services for an assignment in United Kingdom Border Agency and in the United States of America (US) pursuant to his two power of attorneys dated 28 December, 2012 and 5 January, 2013 and refused to pay his professional fees.
He said his client travelled to America several times and engaged the services of a lawyer who was mandated to attend every court session in the US to dispose off a warrant of arrest and eventually settle the case which was instituted by the US government against Uba.
The lawmaker was also accused forging his West African Examination Council Certificate (WAEC) results as well as his Concordia University in Montreal, Canada and several other academic credentials.
Hearing however could not proceed yesterday as the defendant did not file his statement of defence. Thereafter, trial judge, Justice Sylvester Origi adjourned the suit to April 27 to enable Uba to file his statement of defence.
