First, he ordered him to appear before the court for failure to execute his order. Secondly, he directed the Commissioner of Police to execute the Bench warrant earlier issued against the duo.
He also ordered the CP to personally arrest Aliyu and Nasko and personally bring them to court on the next adjourned date which is June 13, 2019.
