A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory FCT on Wednesday struck out two separate fundamental rights enforcement suits instituted against the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, and the Department of State Services, DSS, by two siblings of the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele.


The two brothers, George Emefiele and Okanta Emefiele, had sued the two respondents seeking for order of the Court to enforce their fundamental rights to freedom of movement among others.


They had separately approached the court, seeking, among other reliefs, its order of perpetual injunction restraining the secret police from inviting, intimidating, harassing, and arresting or detaining them in relation “to matters or body of matters which relates to the ongoing investigation of Mr. Godwin Emefiele and/or matters outside the constitutional and statutory mandate of the 1st respondent (DSS)”.


The applicants, in the two separate matters, had joined the DSS and AGF as respondents.
