The Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has instituted a legal action against the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over the “ransacking” of his house in Jos, Plateau State, without a court warrant.

The Governor, who filed his case before Justice Musa Kurya of the Jos Federal High Court, stated that the act was a breach of his fundamental human rights.

The Governor is demanding N1.25 billion as general damages for the action.

Joined in the suit are the Plateau State Commissioner of Police, the EFCC, and the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice.

During the proceedings, Okorocha, through his Counsel, Markus Saleh (SAN), informed the court that the respondents had invaded his residence, in Jos.

He claimed that they held his family members and staff hostage, during their search.

Against this backdrop, Okorocha urged the court to declare the action as “illegal, null and void”, because they had no authorisation from the court to search his residence.

He also prayed the court for a perpetual injunction against the respondents, from further searching his houses across the country.

The Governor, sought for an order declaring that only the Imo State House of Assembly has the constitutional rights and power to supervise, monitor, legislate, appropriate, and demand accounting of public funds of the State from him.

He prayed the court to order the respondents to pay him N1 billion as general damages, and N25 million as cost of instituting the case.

After listening to his submission, Justice Kurya adjourned the matter to January 24, 2019.
