NIS tragedy: Suit against Nigerian government begins Monday

The suit filed by some Nigerians against the federal government over the death of job seekers during the March 15 Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, recruitment exercise will commence on Monday.

The case is to be tried by Justice Abdul Kafarati of the Federal High Court, Abuja, under Suit No. FHC/ABJ/CS/694/2014.

The suit was filed by Patience Omezie, Kasim Suleiman, Okojie Arebamen, and Godwin Morka while the defendants include the federal government and the Interior Minister.

The plaintiffs’ counsel include Funke Adekoya, J.S. Okutepa, Ayo Obe, Ikeazor Akaraiwe, and Victoria Ibezim-Ohaeri.

At least 16 Nigerians died across Nigeria when hundreds of thousands of applicants stormed various recruitment centres to fill the 4000 vacant positions in the NIS.

A day after the tragedy, the Minister for Interior, Abba Moro, claimed that the applicant’s impatience and failure to follow instructions were the cause of the tragedy.

Mr. Moro later appeared before a Senate Committee on Interior during a public hearing where he accepted responsibility for the deaths.

He has, however, remained in office despite calls by some Nigerians that he resigns or be removed.

President Goodluck Jonathan has since offered automatic employment to families of the victims and ordered the return of the N1000 registration fee collected from each applicant.

The president also promised that a fresh recruitment exercise would be carried out.
