Court refuses to send police away from Melaye’s house


Senator Dino Melaye will continue to have the ‘unwanted guests’ in his Abuja residence as the Federal High Court in Abuja has rejected an application for an order directing the police to remove their men from the house.
At least, the police, who have been occupying the place for about a week, with the intention to arrest Melaye, can still be there till January 14, to which Justice N. E. Maha has adjourned the case.
The Senator had, through his lawyer, Mr Nkem Okoro of the law firm of Mike Ozekhome (SAN), filed a fundamental right enforcement suit to challenge the police occupation.
Okoro, on Thursday, moved the ex parte application before Justice N. E. Maha.
Ruling on the ex parte application on Thursday, Justice Maha refused to grant the request to order the removal of the policemen from the senator’s house.
