Ibrahim Idris, Inspector General of Police.

The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice have been dragged to the Federal High Court, Abuja, over failure to obey a court judgment.

One John Obor filed the suit yesterday on behalf of a Lagos-based legal practitioner, Ademola Odusote.

The suit No FHC/ABJ/CS/1157/17, was brought pursuant to Order 3, Rules 6 and 9 of the Federal High Court Civil Procedure Rules 2009.

The plaintiff wants the court to determine whether by the interpretation of Section 287 (3) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended), the first, second and third defendants are not under legal obligation to enforce court judgments in any part of the country.

Whether, considering the continuous and flagrant disobedience of court judgments by the first, second and third defendants, the second defendant is still fit to remain in office as the IGP and Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the federation

Whether the fourth defendant, being the Chief Law Officer of the Federation, is not under legal obligation to advise the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to remove the second defendant from office as the IGP on the grounds he has been in continuous breach of provisions of section 287 (3) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) thereby posing threat to the sustenance of democracy.

Whether considering the flagrant disobedience of court judgments by the first, second and third defendants, the second defendant is still fit to remain in office as the IGP and Chief Law Enforcement Officer.
