The Magistrate, Mr Daniel John, gave the order, following the failure of the lawmaker to appear before the court over alleged charge of cheating a businessman of N490,000.
The order was issued after the magistrate confirmed that the registrar personally served the lawmaker with the court summons in the criminal trial.
The Magistrate described the action of Isa as contempt of the court, frowning that the lawmaker had no reason not to appear before the court.
“The Court Registrar has testified before the court that he personally served Mr Simon Isa with summons to appear before the court on Wednesday 12, February .
”Since there is evidences that Simon Isa was duly served, the law is no respecter of anybody,” the magistrate said.
According to the criminal summons marked CMC/9462/2019, Simon Isa on Feb. 20, 2014, bought a 25KVA DENYO generator at N2,490,000, but paid N2million with an outstanding balance of N490,000
The charge said that all efforts to get the balance of the money since then had failed.
The act, the charge said, was tantamount to cheating and contrary to Section 320 of the Penal Code Law of Adamawa State.
Earlier, Chief Godwin Ehimakhoi, Counsel to the complainant, told the court that there was evidence that the defendant was duly served, but neither the defendant nor his counsel was in court.
The case was adjourned to the Feb. 18, for further mention.
