Victor Giwa seeks Attorney General’s intervention to halt criminal charges against him

Embattled Lawyer Victor Giwa, who was recently disqualified as a candidate for the Chairmanship of the NBA Garki Branch 2024 Election has pleaded with the Attorney General of the Federation, Lateef Fagbemi to halt the criminal charges leveled against him.

LeadersNG recalls that Giwa’s disqualification stems from documented allegations of misconduct including deploying thugs to carry out an illegal eviction in Abuja. He was to be arraigned on July 3, 2024, on an eight-count charge filed by the Hon. Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice involving illegal eviction and other criminal infractions. Additionally, Giwa has cases pending before the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee (LPDC).

You would recall that Giwa’s name was removed from the list of candidates, and he is barred from participating in the election until he resolves the pending issues and provides evidence of their resolution.

Furthermore, Giwa was disqualified for failing to meet the required attendance of five branch meetings within the previous twelve months, as stipulated by the Uniform Bye Laws.
