President Muhammadu Buhari’s

Justice John Tsoho of the Federal High Court, Abuja, has fixed December 6, 2016 for commencement of hearing in the N50 billion suit against President Muhammadu Buhari and others over judges’ arrest.

A Lagos-based lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje, had on October 14, 2016 instituted a legal action against the President, Department of State Services (DSS) Director-General, Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Inspector-General of Police (IGP) as well as the National Judicial Council (NJC).

Ogungbaje alleged that the defendants violated the rights of judges whose houses were raided by operatives of the DSS between October 8 and 9.Hearing in the matter was originally billed to begin yesterday but the absence of the judge stalled the hearing and a new date (December 6) fixed.
