Presiding over the suit, the judge, Bello Kawu, made the order stopping the case in a ruling on an application filed by the 50 defendants to challenge the criminal complaints pending before the Chief Magistrate’s Court in Wuse Zone 6, Abuja.
Granting the prayers of the plaintiffs on Wednesday, Mr Kawu issued an order of “stay of all proceedings of the direct criminal complaint” pending before the chief magistrate, “Omolola Tolulope O. Akindele sitting at Chief Magistrate Court II, Wuse Zone 6 in the suit, Kenechukwu Okeke vs Deji Adeyanu and 49 others in suit CR/49/2020”.
The judge also granted an order restraining the Nigeria Police Force and the FCT Police Command sued as the second and third defendants in the suit “from taking any further steps, arresting and or taking any unconstitutional/illegal steps in the form of any guise as it concerns the subject matters whatsoever before this court herein as it concerns all parties in the proceedings”.
