An Abuja High Court has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of a lawyer, Mr. Nzedebe Chinonso Paul, to compel him to stand trial for allegedly cutting off the ear of his estranged wife, Mrs Roseline Nwogo Nzedebe, with a pair of pliers.

The trial Judge, Njideka Nwosu Iheme issued the warrant for Nzedebe’s arrest following his failure to appear for his arraignment and upon a request made by Police Prosecutor, Barrister Fidelis Ogbobe.

The prosecution counsel submitted that since on several occasions, service had been effected on the accused person without him showing any respect for the court or willingness to appear for his arraignment, he was invoking the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA) to apply for a warrant for his arrest.
