The Lagos State High Court sitting in Igbosere on Thursday dismissed two suits requesting the sum of N10 Million as compensation from the Lagos State Attorney –General/ Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Moyosore Onigbanjo, SAN.
Two individuals Joseph Peter and Idowu Akorede sued Onigbanjo over alleged infringement of personal liberty and violation of fundamental human rights.
‘’In both cases, Applicants prayed the court to declare that their Fundamental Right to personal liberty is being infringed upon by the State Attorney-General,” the suit read.
‘’They, therefore, asked the court to release the Applicants unconditionally and award 10 Million Naira against the respondent’’.
The ruling Judge, Hon. Justice O. O Ogunjobi however dismissed the case filed by the applicants and refused to declare that the respondent infringed on their rights to personal liberty.
Justice Ogunjobi instead charged the applicants for conspiracy against the Lagos attorney-general.
‘’You are hereby remanded for conspiracy to commit Armed Robbery and Armed Robbery while your request for 10 million naira compensation is dismissed’,” Justice Ogunjobi ruled.
