Hearing in a suit filed the aide de camp to former President Goodluck Jonathan against the EFCC will begin on Friday, February 26.
Colonel Ojogbane Adegbe is claiming N100 million damages for his detention by the anti graft agency, which he said is a violation of his fundamental rights.
Col. Adegbe’s counsel, Ogwu Onoja, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, in the suit urged the court to declare that his client’s arrest and continued detention by EFCC since February 11 was unconstitutional and violated his right to personal liberty guaranteed by the 1999 Constitution.
He urged the court to make an order directing the EFCC to immediately release the applicant from unlawful detention.
He argued that the arrest and detention of Adegbe by the EFCC violated his right to personal liberty and freedom of movement guaranteed by section 35 and 41 of the 1999 constitution and Articles 5, 6, and 12 of the African Charter on Human and People’s Right.
