Court adjourns suit seeking IGP's removal until March 16

Court adjourns suit seeking IGP's removal until March 16

By Wandoo Sombo

The Federal High Court Abuja, on Wednesday, adjourned until March 16, a suit seeking the removal of the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Mohammed Adamu from office.

Justice Ahmed Mohammed fixed the date following the agreement of counsel in the matter.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Feb. 3, extended the tenure of Adamu as Inspector-General of Police by three months after his retirement on Feb. 1.

Following the decision of the president, a legal practitioner, Mr Maxwell Okpara, approached the court praying for an order that Adamu should resign from office, having spent the mandatory 35 years in service.

When the matter was called, counsel to Okpara, Mr U.C Ejike told the court that the matter was slated for hearing of the motion to abridge time.

Ejike, however, informed the court that the second defendant, (the inspector-general) filed a counter affidavit which was served on his client on Feb. 23.

The lawyer also told the court that the other defendants in the matter, the president and the attorney-general had not responded to the motion.

He informed the court that he needed time to respond to the counter affidavit just as he was expecting replies from the defendants to his motion to abridge time.

Responding, counsel to the inspector-general, Mr Alex Ejesieme (SAN), did not oppose the application for an adjournment but he informed the court that he was served with the motion late on Feb. 22.

He, however, said that he was able to file a response and serve on the applicant on Feb. 23.

The judge thereafter adjourned the matter until March 16 for hearing of the substantive suit.

The plaintiff, in the suit, in addition to asking the inspector-general to resign, is also praying the court to restrain him from exercising any form of command over the Nigeria Police.

He also  contended that Adamu’s tenure  elapsed on Feb. 1 by  virtue of the Nigeria Police Act.

He maintained that Adamu completed his tenure as inspector-general on Feb. 1 after completing 35 years in service as required by the Nigeria Police Act.

In the originating summon in suit number FHC/ABJ/CS/106/2021, the plaintiff, Maxwell Okpara, wants the court to determine, whether by provisions of Section 215, 216, and Section 7 of the Nigeria Police Act 2020, Adamu can continue to function as inspector-general after Feb 2.

The plaintiff also asked the court to determine, whether the failure of the president or the Nigeria Police (first and second defendants) to appoint another inspector-general did not constitute an abdication of their duty.

In a ten paragraph affidavit, deposed to by the counsel, Maxwell Okpara,(plaintiff), he stated that though, Adamu was no longer a serving Police officer but had continued to function in that capacity.

The plaintiff urged the court to determine if the continued stay in office by Adamu was not a breech of the provisions of the constitution and the Nigeria Police Act.

The plaintiff, therefore prayed the court to declare illegal, null and void all actions taken by Adamu from midnight of February 1.(NAN)

'Lie lie lover, lórí irọ́', By Goke Butika

'Lie lie lover, lórí irọ́', By Goke Butika

Goke Butika

One of the unforgivable sins Mahatma Gandhi stated is “politics without principle”, and that’s in vogue now, because majority of politicians nowadays see people who will vote for them as pawns, and people are very clear about it.
 So, when one local preacher waxes “Lori iro” (upon lies) lyrics to describe lies lovers of nowadays tell effortlessly, it quickly becomes a catch-phrase.

As from lies told by desperate lovers who want to take advantage of one another, lies in political climate now have made any form of lies a mere prank, and it’s not peculiar to a  clime. As it’s happening in Africa, so it’s in America, Europe and others.

We used to hear about spirituality of Saudi Arabia, until its crown Prince ordered killing of the critic of the kingdom, Journalist Jamal Khasoggi; the poor journalist was killed, his body was dismembered and taken away. He was made to disappear from the face of planet. 

When the Saudi Crown Prince was asked why he ordered the brutal assassination of the Saudi citizen, he lied until technology revealed the truth.

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Natayyau is still standing corruption trial in court. In that wise, let no one acculturates lies to a particular climate. 

However, in Nigeria, lies seem to be the only stock in trade, because when politicians speak to their crowd of helpless people, they claim that they have set of principles that are different only to realize later that it’s all “lori iro”.

Meanwhile, to metastasize the “lori iro”, we could say that the way politicians are crisscrossing party in Nigeria is everything, but principle- “Lori iro”.

I remember when the former governor of Osun state, Olagunsoye Oyinlola moved to APC, and started badmouthing the PDP on the podium of Rauf Aregbesola’s reelection; Oyinlola cited Iyiola Omisore as a “plague” that would never make him to stay in the party where he fought for its National Secretary office. Today, Oyinlola has returned to PDP, and Omisore is now in APC as a chieftain. “Lori iro”.

Remember, when Late Isiaka Adeleke wept like baby, alleging that some of the Omisore’s boys manhandled him at NEXT hotel, Osogbo, the then venue of PDP meeting on 2015 governorship primary; he ran to Aregbesola and sought help. Aregbesola accepted him and rehabilitated him with Senatorial seat, later he wanted to become the governor and Aregbesola was perceived not to dispose to the idea, based on what he reportedly promised. 

Suddenly, he died and the Ede people and his supporters pined the death on Aregbesola despite the fact that medical evaluation said otherwise; because of that Ede has an axe to grind with APC. “Lori iro.”

If Omisore is now the game changer for Governor Gboyega Oyetola as I was made to believe without the consent of Aregbesola and traditional AD offshoot, would he (Omisore) be an asset or liability?
