Osun Election Protest : JUST IN: Saraki, Melaye, Murray-Bruce Sue IG, Demand N500m Damages

Osun Election Protest : JUST IN: Saraki, Melaye, Murray-Bruce Sue IG, Demand N500m Damages

President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki; senators Dino Melaye and Ben Murray-Bruce have sued the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, over their invitation by the Nigeria Police.

Saraki, Melaye and Murray-Bruce were among the three leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party who held a protest march to the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission and the Force Headquarters in Abuja on Friday to protest against the outcome of the Osun State governorship election.

The Police had invited only Melaye and Murray-Bruce to appear before the Federal Capital Territory Command over alleged assaults on its men and destruction of its property.

The lawmakers, however, failed to respond to the invitation. Instead, they had sued the IG and the Commissioner of Police, FCT Command, praying the court to, among others, direct the defendants to “jointly and severally pay the applicants the sum of N500m, being the pecuniary and exemplary damages arising from the humiliation, intimidation, harassment and unlawful attempt to arrest the applicants by the agents of the second respondent (Commissioner of Police).”

Court papers obtained by our correspondent on Monday showed that the suit, with Number FHC/ABJ/03/095/2018, was filed by Mahmud Abubakar Magaji, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, on behalf of the lawmakers.
