The New Democrat Newspaper has obtained judicial document from a count seated in the Abuja Federal Capital Territory confirming Liberty Party Campaign Manager Mr. Musa Hassan Bility is facing a US$2.4million criminal Case in Nigeria.
This development contrasts Mr. Bility and his Liberty Party’s position that this paper’s publication is a “cowardly political gimmick calculated to besmirch him.”
On April 13, 2017,Nigeria’s law enforcement authorities sought and obtained arrest warrant from the Abuja Magisterial Court to legally position “all police officers” to arrest Mr. Bility for investigation and prosecution in a case titled: Criminal Breach of Trust, Cheating, Fraudulent Conversion and Issuance of dud cheques. Senior Magistrate Mohammed T. Jibrin Kutigi signed the warrant under stamp and seal.
A chain of email communication shows INTERPOL National Central Bureau in Monrovia acknowledged receiving the arrest notification and transferring the request to Liberian authorities for action. No one in the police, including Inspector General Gregory Coleman is willing to speak to the issue. Police Chief Coleman did not deny nor confirm the issuance of the arrest warrant when contacted but would rather prefer this paper filing a formal Freedom of information request. A top security source Monday confirmed the existence of the Interpol alert but said the process that will lead to its enforcement has not been finalized.
Nigerian businessman Kunle Roberts has complained that in March 2012, his company Drake Alliance Oil Trading FZE reached an agreement with Bility’s Nexis Enterprise Inc. and Srimex Oil and Gas for the shipment of petroleum products for Bility’s companies in Liberia.
Kunle said he delivered 9,671.496 metric tons but Bility and companies refused to pay US$2,450,000 (two million, four hundred and fifty thousand United States dollars), representing the total value of the supplied consignment.
To settle his obligation with the Nigerian, Bility promised to be paying US$50,000 monthly until 2015. But when it was time to pay, Bility issued two bad checks totaling US$250,000 each.
