Staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Monday in Abuja morning locked up offices at the headquarters of the commission in Abuja to protest an attempt to reinstate the suspended Director-General, Mounir Gwarzo.
Justice Kado, who dismissed three issues raised by defence counsel through their preliminary objection, ruled that the suit was not status barred.
Gwarzo was indicted for abuse of office and corruption by an administrative panel of inquiry set up by the Federal Ministry of Finance headed by the permanent secretary, Dr. Mahmoud Isa-Dutse.
The House of Representatives’ ad hoc committee which investigated his suspension by the former Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, also indicted him.
Mrs. Adeosun resigned as a minister last September over allegations that she forged her National Youth Service Corps’ (NYSC) certificate.
