A Federal High Court in Abuja has requested the Nigerian Police Force to pay N15m fine to seven associated individuals with Boko Haram over their unlawful detainment for quite a long time without preliminary.
The speculates who were said to have been captured inside a Maiduguri market were purportedly unloaded at the detainment office of the Special Anti-Robbery in Abuja.
The candidates are Ajiri Dungus, Gudja Giddah, Adam Mohammed, Wardi Dungus, Fanami Mustapha, Mohammed Abba and Makinka Dungus.
The court enlistment center was seen setting up a warrant for their delivery on Wednesday after the decision.
Equity M. O. Olajuwon, in a judgment on their central common liberties implementation suit, held that the confinement of the prisoners for a very long time without preliminary repudiated the arrangements of the 1999 constitution on basic freedoms.
The Judge said the police tried to pull a fast one in keeping the prisoners past the period legally necessary, particularly when there was no pertinent and certain ground of arraignment of the candidates for any offense.
