Omo-Agege later joined his colleagues in plenary but was subsequently led away by the police.

The suspended lawmaker said he was not arrested but “merely” left with the police who wanted to hear his perspective on the matter

However, Omo-Agege’s lawyers approached the court on Thursday to seek an interim injunction against arrest or detention of the senator.

The team of lawyers led by Aliyu Umar, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN) asked the court to restrain the respondents, listed to include attorney-general of the federation (AGF), inspector-general of police (IGP), commissioner of police FCT command and the director-general of the state security service (SSS), from attempting to threaten or violate the fundamental human rights of the applicant.
