Deregistration: New Ohanaeze Ndigbo drags CAC to EFCC

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly has dragged the Registrar General of the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and others to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over its deregistration.

The group described its deregistration by the CAC as suspicious and unlawful.

In a petition to the EFCC by its lawyer, J .O. Ekwenze, the group alleged that millions of dollar exchanged hands towards influencing the CAC’s action, insisting on thorough investigation by the EFCC on the matter.

It maintained that the CAC had no powers in law and in moral to deregister it, having fulfilled all conditions required by Company Allied Matters Act and other extant laws for registration and incorporation.

Their petition read in part,” Petition against the Registrar General of the Corporate Affairs Commission and others for conniving with some desperate politicians and individuals to unlawfully withdraw/cancel the certificate of incorporation issued to Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly in order to issue same or register similar name in favour of the suspected individuals alleged to have given some millions of dollars bribe to the Registrar General and some senior staff of the commission.

“We hereby called on the chairman of EFCC to investigate the ongoing sharp practices going on at the CAC; threats to life of Barrister Basil Onyeachonam Onuorah, the president general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly and invite one of the principal suspects, Chief John Nnia Nwodo for security questioning.

“We have also served pre-action/demand notice to CAC for immediate withdrawal of the purported public notice and reinstatement of Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly at the commission’s portal/database, and failure to so within the expected timeframe will result to court action.”
