“On Nov. 9, 2022, Justice Amina Bello of the Kaduna State High Court entered judgment in favour of my clients on the strength of the affidavit evidence and exhibits.

“After obtaining the judgment, the order of the court was served on the commissioner of police who is the first defendant in the case,” he said.
