Addressing journalists after the Rivers State High Court sitting in Port Harcourt on Wednesday adjourned the murder trial of Ojukaye Flag Amachree, Counsel to the Rivers State Government, Chief Godwin Obla (SAN) said the interface has become necessary because of the refusal of the sacked Factional Rivers State APC Chairman to willingly appear in court.

Obla emphasised that if the accused person is not produced on the next adjourned date; there are legal processes to compel the IGP and the Commissioner of Police in Rivers State to produce the accused person on the 18thof March 2019.

On Wednesday, a High Court sitting in Port Harcourt adjourned till 18thof March, the murder case between the State and the sacked Rivers State factional chairman of APC , Ojukaye Flag Amachree.
