Abuja Court Orders Police, Customs To Seize Obasanjo’s Book, ‘My Watch’

A High Court siting in Abuja has ordered the Nigeria Police as well as the Customs to seize ‘MY WATCH’, a book by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Justice Valentine Ashi in her verdict on Wednesday said Obasanjo disobeyed the court order by publishing the book after he was told not to.
Ashi said: “I am of the view that the defendant having gone ahead to publish the book, he should therefore show cause within 21 days of the order served on him on why he should not be punished for contempt of court.
“The Inspector-General of Police, the Director-General of State Security Services and the Controller General of Nigeria Customs Services are hereby directed to recover the book from sales vendors.”
The judge further directed that the book should be kept with the registrar of the court pending the determination of the suit.
Earlier, counsel to Obasanjo, Realwan Okpanachi, had told the court that the book was published before the order was granted.
