The Abuja Federal High Court has stopped the police force from arresting and detaining Former Minister of State for Education, Kenneth Gbagi.
Kenneth Gbagi was earlier today said to be wanted by the police department over his hotel staffs who were allegedly stripped naked for the sake of a missing N5,000.
He arrested the four staff working in Signatious Hotel, Warri, Delta State, after they were stripped naked and their photos was taken inside the hotel before finally handing them over to the police last week Friday.
After assaulting the four staffs which includes a male and three females, they were handed over to the Police to be detained in Ebrumede custody.
Justice Taiwo O Taiwo, presiding Judge of a Federal High Court in Abuja, has restrained the police from arresting and detaining the industrialist.
“Justice Taiwo, upon a motion exparte, by Gbagi (applicant)’s lawyer, Nkem Okoro Esq., barred the Inspector General of Police, Commissioner of Police, Delta state (first and second respondents), whether by themselves, their agents, employees, or by whatever name called, from threatening to arrest and detaining Gbagi (applicant) pending the hearing and determination of his application for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights.”
He restrained both the Inspector General of Police and Commissioner of Police, Delta from arresting and detaining Gbagi, granted him (applicant) leave to “serve the originating processes in this matter on the second respondent by substituted means.”
“The respondents are at liberty if they wish to file their response jointly and/or severally within 14 days.”
Justice Taiwo further made the above statement.
