A federal high court sitting in Abuja says National Security is not at variance with the rule of Law. 

Justice Nnamdi Dimgba in his pronouncement over the human rights violation suffered by Jones Abiri, a journalist who was incarcerated for over two years without trial, gave a knock on the Department of State Service over records of human rights violation.

The court awarded N10.5m damages to the victim and declared his detention illegal and a breach of his constitutional rights to freedom.
