Okorocha Sues IGP, EFCC, Demands N1bn In Damages Over Home Invasion

Rochas Okorocha, Imo governor, has sued Ibrahim Idris, the inspector-general of police (IGP), over an alleged breach of his fundamental human rights in respect to the “ransacking” of his house in Jos.

The governor, who filed his case before justice Musa Kurya of the Jos federal high court, is demanding N1.25 billion as general damages for the action.

Joined in the suit are Plateau commissioner of police, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the attorney-general of the federation and minister of justice.

Okorocha, through his counsel, Markus Saleh (SAN), had told the court that on May 3, the respondents had invaded his home in Jos and held his family members and staff hostage in a search conducted without any court warrant./Via Oriental Times
