The National Industrial Court of Nigeria has summoned the Group Managing Director of the Odua Investment Company Limited, Mr Adewale Raji, and two other officials of the company over alleged contempt of court.

The development was sequel to an action filed by Abiodun Adedeji, a management staff of the company, against the GMD, bordering on alleged oppression, discrimination and misrepresentation of facts to the board of the company.

It was gathered that trouble started in September when two bailiffs of the court were attacked while trying to serve court papers on the company.

After a repeated visit to the company, the bailiffs were said to have been directed to drop the court processes at the security post.
