The Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday entered judgment against the Nigeria Police Force in the fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by one Mr. Okwuchukwu Obiechina said to be the brother in-law of alleged kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, alias Evans.


Justice Mohammed Idris, in a judgment on Monday, declared Obiechina's arrest and detention as unconstitutional, holding that the remand order which the police claimed to have obtained from a magistrates court to detain him was invalid.

Apart from ordering the police to immediately release Obiechina unconditionally or charge him to court if they have any case against him, the court also awarded N 2m damages in his favour against the police.

Justice Idris ordered the police to tender a public apology to Obiechiana to be published in two national dailies.
