Dr Bukola Saraki, the Senate President, and two other senators, Ben Murray-Bruce and Dino Melaye, on Monday, filed a N500m suit against the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, for allegedly harassing them following the protest they staged alongside other leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party on Friday demanding free and fair elections in 2019.The police had invited the trio who with others led the October 5, 2018 protest to the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission. But instead of complying with the invitation by the police, the trio jointly filed a fundamental human rights enforcement suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/1095 before the Federal High Court in Abuja. With the IG and the Commissioner of Police of the Federal Capital Territory Command, joined as the two defendants, the plaintiffs asked the court to declare their invitation by the police as illegal, unconstitutional, and a gross violation of their rights guaranteed by sections 34 and 35 of the Constitution, and Article 11 of the African Charter on Peoples’ and Human Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act.Photo Credit: Getty
