Court Invasion: NHRC calls for arrest, trial of security operatives involved


The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has called for the arrest and subsequent trial of operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) and other security officials involved in the invasion of the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The Executive Secretary of NHRC, Tony Ojukwu, made the call in a statement on Saturday barely a day after some DSS operatives stormed the court. “The Commission directs all the relevant agencies of government to arrest and try all law enforcement officers involved in the desecration of the hallowed chambers of the Federal High Court Abuja on Friday 6th Dec 2019 for contempt in the face of the court.

“They should be tried, and this should serve as a reminder to all law enforcement agents that they must obey the law in carrying out their law enforcement duties,” he said.
