Former Imo State Governor Emeka Ihedioha has asked an Owerri High Court to stop the House of Assembly from probing him for allegedly mismanaging N19.63 billion Naira council funds.
The state Auditor-General for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs had issued an interim audit report, detailing how N19.63 billion Naira fraudulently disappeared from the Local Government accounts between May and December 31st, 2019.
But Ihedioha has applied for a perpetual injunction restraining it from investigating him.
Ihedioha is also seeking an order to set aside any summon or invitation by the House or its agents, for him to appear before it for probe.
The Assembly is expected to respond to the suit ahead of hearing.
