Federal Hight Court rejects wanted Dino Melaye’s application to restrain police from his house

The Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday rejected an application for an order directing the police to remove their men from Senator Dino Melaye’s Abuja residence.

A Federal High Court, in Abuja, has dismissed an application filed by embattled senator Dino Melaye for the court to issue an order for the removal of police blockade on his Abuja residence.

Melaye approached the court through his lawyer, Nkem Okoro of the Mike Ozekhome (SAN) chambers, for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights. The court had subsequently fixed today for the hearing of the ex-parte application filed together with the enforcement of his fundamental human rights’ suit.

In the ex-parte application, Melaye asked 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 prayed the court to issue an order restraining the police from further threatening his life or putting his life in jeopardy pending the determination of the substantive suit.

At the hearing of the case this morning, the presiding judge, Justice N.E. Maha refused the application and ordered an accelerated hearing of the substantive suit.

The matter was thereafter adjourned to January 14th.
