Share This

Chief Sunday Adeniyi Adeyemo, popularly called Sunday Igboho, has approached the Federal High Court sitting in Ibadan in a fundamental rights enforcement suit to seek redress for the actual, threatened and likely breach of his fundamental human rights to liberty, freedom of movement, private life, freedom of expression and right to property.

In the suit docketed as FHC/IB/CS/25/2021, Sunday Igboho joined as Defendants the Oyo State Governor, the Attorney-General of Oyo State, the Inspector-General of Police, the State Security Service and the Attorney-General of the Federation. Other Defendants in the suit are all the military and para-military agencies in the country.

Speaking on the development, counsel to Sunday Igboho, Hashim Abioye Esq, confirmed to our corespondent that his client has instituted a fundamental right suit before the Federal High Court, sitting in Ibadan, to pursue the declaratory, injunctive and compensatory reliefs being sought in the originating summons filed on behalf of his client.

The brave lawyer declared that it is within the realm of section 46(1) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended, to approach the court for redress in the event of any actual, threatened or likely infringement on the fundamental rights of any citizen of Nigeria as ultimately guaranteed under the Nigerian 1999 Constitution, as amended, stating that the events in recent time as they revolve around “Sunday Igboho” suggest that there has been a flagrant breach of his client’s fundamental human rights, and that the said fundamental rights of his client are still under imminent threat of breach indicating there is likelihood of further breach on the part of the Defendants. The suit has been fixed for Tuesday the 15th day of April, 2021 for hearing before the Federal High Court Ibadan.
