A former gubernatorial aspirant under the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), in Bauchi state during the 2011 general elections, Alhaji Abdullahi Adamu Usman popularly called Dan China has dragged the Federal Government, Attorney General of the Federation, (AGF) as well as the National Security Adviser (NSA) to court demanding for the sum of N1 billion over his continued detention and alleged infringement of his fundamental human rights.

In the suit filed by his Counsel, Barrister Gyang Zi before the Federal High Court, Bauchi he said that his continued detention was against the law and therefore he was demanding to be released from detention as the matter came up for hearing and the respondents were not in the court,

He alleged that the respondents invaded the residence of Alhaji Abdullahi Adamu Dan China at Sabon Gari Narabi in Toro Local Government area in Bauchi state using military personnel which
was unlawful.

Zi said, “the action of the respondents harassing, embarrassing and arresting and detaining my client from 24 January 2018 till date a period of about 30 days and still running in the manner aforesaid and the refusal to allow us access to him and family members is illegal, unlawful and gross violation of the Constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended”.

“We also want the respondents to pay our Client Adamu Usman the sum of N1,000,000,000,00 one billion naira only as general damages and compensation for the unlawful arrest, frustration, detention and subjecting him to psychological trauma”, he said.

The Counsel to Abdullahi Adamu further said that “we also want a perpetual injunction restraining the respondents from further arrest, detention, frustration, disturbance and subjecting our client to undue psychological trauma in connection to mining or at his residence”.

Meanwhile, Justice Mohammed Shitu Abubabakar of the Federal High Court Bauchi while listening to the plaintiff said that with the absence of the respondents and no court process have filled by them the matter cannot go on.

He then adjourned the case to 15th of March 2018 for hearing to enable the respondents to respond to the court processes.

The counsel to Adamu said all the 3 respondents the Federal Government, Attorney General of the Federation and National Security Adviser were served with the order of notice on the 8th February 2018 by order of the court.
