A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Jabi has fixed judgment for Monday in a fundamental Human rights enforcement suit filed by a former aide to the ex-National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki, Col. Nicholas Ashinze. Ashinze who has been in detention since December 23 last year, is seeking an order releasing him on bail.
He wants the court to direct the respondents to tender a public apology and pay him N500m as compensation for wrongful detention. Named as respondents in the suit were the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, the Chief of Army Staff and the Nigerian Army. Ashinze through his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN) alleged that he had been in custody of the respondents for no verifiable reasons.
