Have you ever be harassed by SARS or the Nigerian Police ?. There is something you can do to earn a million minimum. Just file a lawsuit with serious evidence and making sure you’re not guilty of any charge.
This is the case of an innocent Nigerian, Kingsley Efobi who was extorted a sum of N16,500 by SARS personnel and was forced to sit on bare floor, give up his handset and detained. Efobi was harassed by just like this innocent young Nigerian was. Nigerian youths are now living in fear of what can harm them and what should protect them from what can harm them.
The Nigeria Police Force has been ordered to pay N3 million to one Kingsley Efobi, for violation of his fundamental right to personal liberty. The court order was issued by FCT High Court, Maitama on Tuesday 13th March 2018.
On May 10, 2017, Efobi filed a suit against the Nigeria Police Force, the Inspector-General of Police and the Commissioner of Police, FCT Command, for violating his fundamental human right.
Justice Jude Okeke, delivering judgment in the suit filed by Efobi, held that there was no basis for the court to disbelieve the evidence of Efobi, which was not opposed by the respondents (the Nigeria Police Force, the Inspector-General of Police and the Commissioner of Police, FCT Command). He held that in order to ensure that Efobi was protected from further violation of his fundamental right to personal liberty, in facts of this matter, the court would be minded in line with the provision of 46 (1) of the Constitution.
“Accordingly, an order of perpetual injunction is granted, restraining the respondents, their agents or servants from harassing the applicant on account of the subject matter of this suit. The respondents jointly and severally are ordered to pay to the applicant a sum of N2 million damages for breaking his right to personal liberty. N1million for violating his right not to be subjected to inhuman treatment,’’
Judge Jude held.
Judge Jude also ordered that the respondent jointly return to Efobi a sum of N16,500 being the money extorted from him by the SARS officers of the respondent. He also ordered that the respondent pay the applicant N50,000 for emerging successfully from the suit.
Judge Jude held that the force by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad to Efobi to remove his sandals, sit on a bare floor, give up his handset, as well as his detention, was a violation of his human right.
To Nigerian Judiciary for sparking a hope of Good Nigeria I just want to say
