Court Matter: Call Alagbon Police Officers to order, Rights group
tells IGP,PSC, NPC,
     …. Don’t drag AIG FCID name into mud

 A human rights organization, the Centre for Human Rights and Social
 Justice (CHRSJ) has urged the Inspector General of Police (IGP),Police
 Service Commission (PSC), Nigeria Police Council(NPC), and National Human
 Rights Commission (NHRC)  to call the  officers of the Force Criminal
 Investigation Department (FCID), Alagbon,Ikoyi, Lagos State to order over
 illegal intervention into the Court matter on the property belonging to the
 family of late Alhaji Busari Apata of Mokola area,Ibadan in Oyo State.

 The group stated that the call became imperative for police to hand off of
 any matter that was before the court of competent jurisdiction in the land,
 saying that for Police Officers who knew the position of the law to be
 using the name of the office of the Assistant Inspector General of Police
 (AIGP)in charge of FCID,Lagos to be dabbling into the Court matter,was
 tantamount to contempt of the court.

 It was trite principle of the judicial process in Nigeria that when any
 matter was before the Court of competent jurisdiction,all the parties
 including security agents in the matter should maintain status quo, pending
 the determination of the matter by the Court.

 Speaking on the matter through a signed statement by the CHRSJ’S Executive
 Chairman, Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman and copies were made available to
 newsmen on Tuesday, urged the affected Police Officers from FCID Alagbon to
 restrain themselves from the said matter.

 Reacting to the invitation letter dated 12th August,2020, inviting one
 Pastor Michael Olatunbosun Apata of Light House Church,Shamanda, Ibadan on
 the same matter before the Oyo State High Court of Justice,Ibadan Judicial
 Division with suit no:-I/563/2018.

 Comrade Sulaiman who stressed that CHRSJ would soon report the officers
 who were poking fingers into the eyes of the Court by detailing the whole
 saga sorrounding the said property and forwarded to the office of the IGP,
 authority of the Police Service Commission (PSC),Nigeria Police Council
 (NPC) and National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in order to safe the
 Force from unnecessary litigations from citizens which the Force used to
 bear the brunt of payment.

 He urged the police authority to respect the rule of fair hearing in any
 Court of Competent jurisdiction as stipulated by section 36 of the 1999
 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended).

 According to the Letter of Invitation forwarded to Micheal O. Apata, and
 signed by ACP. Rasheed O. Lawal in charge of Administration for Assistant
 Inspector General of Police,FCID Annex.

 the Federal Republic of Nigeria which maintained that any matter before the
 court of law should not be prejudiced and any law contravened the position
 of the Constitution should be seen as null and void.
