Dino Melaye’s Request For Police to Vacate His Residence Rejected by Court
A Federal High Court in Abuja has refused a request by a senator, Dino Melaye, for police officers to vacate his residence and desist from further attempts at arresting him.
Melaye approached the court through his lawyer, Nkem Okoro of the Mike Ozekhome (SAN) chambers, for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights.
He also asked the court to enforce his fundamental rights.
In a ruling on the ex-parte application on Thursday, a judge, N. E. Maha, refused the application, but ruled that the substantive matter be granted accelerated hearing.
The matter was thereafter adjourned to January 14.
