Court rejects Dino Melaye’s application to remove police from his house


Federal High Court, in Abuja, has refused an ex-parte application
brought by Senator Dino Melaye to order the removal of police blockade
on his residence.

Melaye approached the court through his lawyer, Nkem Okoro of the Mike
Ozekhome (SAN) chambers, for the enforcement of his fundamental human
rights.


In the ex-parte application, Melaye prayed the court for an interim
order of the court directing the police to vacate his residence and
remove all blockades in front of the residence and allow his family
and political associates to have access to him.

He also sought an order restraining the police from further
threatening his life or putting his life in jeopardy pending the
determination of the substantive suit.

He further sought the order of the court restraining the police from
further arresting him, pending the hearing and determination of the
substantive suit.

However, the judge, Justice N.E. Maha, refused the application and
ordered an accelerated hearing of the substantive suit.

The matter was thereafter adjourned to January 14.

She said, in view of the fact that her leave to seat as a vacation
judge would elapse on January 4, the case file would be transferred to
the Chief Judge for re-assignment.

We had reported that Senator Melaye, who alleged that the
Inspector-General of Police, IGP Ibrahim Idris will inject him
(Melaye) to death if he is arrested, has been under police siege since
last Friday.
