The Nigeria Police, Department of State Security Service and the Attorney General of the Federation, have been restrained by a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory from arresting or threatening embattled senator, Ovie Omo-Agege.
Omo-Agege’s lawyers approached the court on Thursday seeking an interim injunction against further arrest or detention of the senator.
The team of lawyers led by Aliyu Umar, a Senior Avocate of Nigeria, asked for court’s protection for the embattled senator pending determination of a fundamental human rights case brought against the respondents.
The judge, Ishaq Bello, granted the four-point prayers of the senator’s lawyers and adjourned the matter to May 6. The case is also reassigned to Court 30 for hearing.
