Court releases Chidi Lloyd’s passport

As lawmaker plans to travel abroad for medical treatment 

From TONY JOHN, Port Harcourt

A vacation court in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has released the International Passport of the Leader of the state House of Assembly, Chidi Lloyd, to enable him to travel abroad for medical treatment.

This was disclosed to journalists on Friday, by his lead counsel, Beluolisa Nwofor, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) in Port Harcourt.

Nwofor said the release of his client’s passport followed two medical reports issued by Lloyd’s doctors, directing that he should proceed on urgent medical treatment abroad.

“Yes. We have to apply to a vacation court for his passport to be released to enable him to travel for medical treatment. Because, after he was granted bail, his doctors examined him on two different things and issued a report that showed extreme urgency. And that the medical facilities to attend to him, are not readily available here in our vicinity.

“And because of that, he needed to travel abroad. In fact, they made a specific referral to a hospital in London where he could obtain adequate medical treatment. You know he cannot travel without his passport.

“So, based on those two medical reports, we had to go to a vacation court, which is a court set aside for urgent matters. And these two medical reports were not there the time the learned trial Judge, Justice Letam Nyordee, granted him bail. They were fresh evidence that emanated following the examination of his health condition after he was granted bail”, he stated.

Lloyd’s counsel also stated that the court granted that he should be given the passport for six weeks, ordering that the travel document should be returned to the court on or before October 28, 2013.

“So, we went back to vacation court and we are happy to note that the vacation Judge saw merit in the application and granted it. And, I must point out that it’s not a permanent release of the passport. So, it is only a release for six weeks to enable him to go for treatment. And, thereafter, the judge ordered that he should return the passport to the court. So, it’s not that he has been given passport for keeps. No. It’s just for him to travel for six weeks and there is an order that he should return it on, or before October 28. So, you can see that there is no cause for alarm”, Nwofor said.

It would be recalled that Justice Nyordee of the State High Court, had, on August 7, this year, granted him bail and ordered that his International Passport should be deposited with the court as part of his bail conditions.

    There is no competent Law court in Rivers state. An attempted murderer granted permission to seek for medical treatment abroad. It shows there is court in Rivers but no good hospitals to treat an ordinary state house member same people were applauding the state governor for good governance shame to these ogogoro consumers , shame! Shame!!
    His video clips are there to prove him culpable tell me the essence of lavishing Rivers treasury in abroad to add more life to a terrorist? Even common hospital the governor couldn’t provide to his people. Who now attend to those hospitals in PH? Methinks , roadside mechanics, school teachers, market women , carpenters, bricklayers, mai ruwa , herdsmen , possibly okada operators and danfo drivers. Legislator my foot!

    @Owerri,u seem to know my mind,make hares while the sun shines,so says the adage.The equipment to diagonose the ailment is not readily available with us but the sickness is deadly& readily available with us here.Suppose it that this ailment befell a common man,he would die,is in’t?These are our leaders who do not know the why they were elected.This is how they go abroad to cure simple headache only to come back with diseases more dangerous than headache&alien to our enviroment.It is the unnecessary contact with the westerners by our elite that brought hiv/aids down to nigeria.It is time we qurantine all these elites who rush to abroad to cure an ailment a common patent medicine dealer at oyigbo could cure to ascertain their health b4 allowing them into the country.They could bring in severe acute respiratory sydrome (sars) or ebola virus or fever &wipe us away.It is not our old mothers &fathers in the village that will bring disease here.In essence we should plan ahead of the future b4 the future arrives with its problems which shall only be given adhoc attention.

      Bonny, what about the wife of a president jonathan that sought medical tourism in Germany for months? You will ask her husband why did not fix the hospitals .

  6. BONNY September 7, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    @Ejike,my last statement was that we should plan for the future.The problem did not start with this present regime of GEJ.Today is the future we talked about yesterday.If our past leaders had fixed things alright this man Lloyed would not need to go abroad for treatment.Iam at the sametime talking to his chorts in governmens at all levels to leave their footprints in the sands of time so that the generation to come would have no need to go &cure headache oversaes.U know very well that the rot today was as result of yesterday’s negligence.
