A Lagos High Court Sitting in the Ikeja area has issued a warrant for the arrest of the Chairman of Innoson Motors Limited, Innocent Chukwuma for failing to appear before the court to face his trial.
Justice Mojisola Dada ordered that Chukwuma should be arrested and brought to court on the next adjourned date of March 14.
