The Justice Taiwo Taiwo led Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday stopped the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu from arresting the ex-minister of State for Education, Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi.
The order restrained the IGP, Delta State Commissioner of Police from arresting and detaining the ex-minister over nude scandal involving some staff of his hotel in Asaba.
Justice Taiwo Taiwo gave the order in suit FHC/ABJ/CS/1267/2020, following Gbagi’s ex parte application for the enforcement of his fundamental rights.
Gbagi was alledged to have ordered that four of his staff were stripped naked for alledged stealing of money belonging to the hotel.
The court also granted Gbagi leave to serve the originating processes and all other subsequent processes in the suit on the COP by substituted means.
The judge ruled that the IGP and the CoP, who are first and second respondents, “are at liberty if they wish to file their response jointly and/or severally within 14 days. ”
He adjourned till October 16 for hearing.
Besides the court’s order, Gbagi’s September 28 application had also sought an order directing parties to maintain status quo, pending the hearing and determination of the application for the enforcement of the fundamental rights of the Applicant.
The alleged stripping incident happened on September 18 and Gbagi, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has since denied any wrongdoing.
