Justice Bello Shinkafi of the Zamfara State High Court ,  Gusau on Monday  ordered that the state Commissioner for Agriculture and Natural Resources, Alhaji Ibrahim Magayaki should  be arrested and kept behind bars for contempt of court.

He ordered that the commissioner be remanded in the Correctional Centre in Gusau, citing the provisions of Section 6 of the Penal Code Law.

Justice Shinkafi said the commissioner disrespected the court order in a suit between the Zamfara  state government and Dumbulum investment.

Mr Misbahu Salauddeen, who is the counsel  for the creditors and applicants, told newsmen shortly after the court sitting that the remand order was based on an application by his clients.

The  judge later adjourned the case until December 16, 2022 for continuation of  hearing.
