Court Stops Army From Arresting Tinubu

Justice J.T Tsoho of a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has granted an interim injunction restraining the Chief of Army Staff, his privies, agents and servants from arresting, detaining, harassing or intimidating the National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, pending the determination of the motion on notice.

The order also prevents the army from laying siege on Tinubu’s home at number 26, Bourdillon Street, Ikoyi, Lagos. The order also restrained the army from preventing Tinubu from participating in the elections

Tinubu had approached the court on March 25 through his lawyer, Femi Falana, seeking the enforcement of his fundamental human rights.

The determination of the motion on notice in the matter between Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the Chief of Army Staff was moved to March 31.
