Court Orders FG To Pay N1Million To Lawyer For Disrupting RevolutionNow Protest

The Federal Government has been asked to pay N1mllion to a Lagos based lawyer Olukoya Ogungbeje, for using the police to disrupt August 5, 2019, #RevolutionNow protest.

The lawyer had sued the Federal Government for N500m, for using security operatives to tear-gas him and other protesters.

Justice Maureen Onyetenu of the Federal High Court in Lagos who awarded the sum in favor of the lawyer upheld his argument of disruption of the peaceful protest by the Federal Government through the police being “illegal, oppressive, undemocratic and unconstitutional.”

She also directed the FG to tender a public apology to the applicant in three national daily newspapers.

DSS’s argument of not being involved in the disruption of the protest was also upheld by Justice Onyetenu.
