supreme courtThe Supreme Court on Friday ordered a contractor, Kris Onyekwuluje, and his company, Artex Investment Limited, to refund the sum of eight five million, five hundred and seventy-five thousand one hundred and eleven Naira and sixty Kobo (N85,575,111.60) to Benue State Government due to poor execution of the contract which the money was meant for.

The Benue Government had paid the company the sum for a contract to supply radio transmitters over 15 years ago.

In a unanimous decision on Friday, the five-man appeal panel of the Supreme Court dismissed the appeal filed by Onyekwuluje and Artex to challenge the earlier decisions of the Federal High Court in Enugu and the Court of Appeal in Jos as well as the directive of the state’s Commission of Inquiry directing them to refund the payment to the state government coffers.
