Nigeria Peace Corps: Court orders DSS, NSA, others to file in fresh process

The Federal High Court, Abuja, has fixed May 31 to commence hearing in the enforcement of fundamental human rights suit brought against the Nigeria Police and four others.

The suit was filed by the Trustees of the Peace Corps of Nigeria and its National Commandant, Mr Dickson Akoh, who demanded N2 billion as compensation.

At the hearing on Monday, Mr Tijani Gazali, counsel to the Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), prayed the court for time to enable him regularise the processes filed on behalf of his client.
Gazali said that the name of the Director-General of the DSS was omitted in the counter affidavit filed on behalf of his clients.
He prayed the court for a short adjournment to enable him correct the anomalies on the counter-affidavit, and to specifically reflect the name of Director-General of the DSS.

Since there was no objection to the application for adjournment, the judge, Justice Gabriel Kolawole, adjourned the matter until May 31.
