Court restrains Nigerian Army from arresting Tinubu

The former governor of Lagos state and leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, has obtained a court injunction stopping his arrest or harassment by the Nigerian army.

Mr. Tinubu was Thursday granted an interim injunction restraining the Chief of Army Staff, Kenneth Minimah, his privies, agents from arresting, detaining, harassing or intimidating the former Lagos governor, pending the determination of the motion on notice.

Mr. Tinubu had said this week that he was ready for arrest. He made the remarks while speaking at the 7th edition of the Bola Tinubu colloquium.   

In the order granted through Mr. Tinubu’s lawyers, Femi Falana, Judge J.T. Tsoho of the Federal High Court in Lagos also barred the Chief of Army Staff or his privies, agents and servants from further laying siege on the home of Bola Tinubu situated at number 26, Bourdillon Street, Ikoyi.

The Judge ordered “That leave is granted to the applicant to serve the originating motion on notice on the respondent at the Ministry of Defence, area 10 Abuja, federal capital territory.

“That the respondent whether by himself privies agent and servant are restrained from arresting, detaining harassing or intimating d applicant pending d determination of d motion on notice; that the respondent whether by himself, agents, privies and servants are restrained from further laying siege on d home of applicant at 26, Bourdillon Street, Ikoyi, Lagos pending d determination of motion on notice.

Justice Tsoho also ordered “that the respondent is restrained from preventing the applicant from participating in the 2015 general election pending the determination of the motion on notice filed herein”.

The case was subsequently adjourned till March 31 for the determination of the motion on notice.

    THE STORY OF JAGABAN COWARD

    Old boy, see coward O! Who is chasing him that he’s running like mad man?
    They’ve not started flogging him for larceny, theft and stealing, he’s already crying.
    When the flogging starts what will he do? This Jagaban Coward na real fake.

    He was boasting yesterday that he was packing bag and bold to face anything at all.
    See the man now dey piss for pant to beg court for injunction when nothing happened.

    Thief-thief people no get liver. They are cowards. Police or SSS should arrest him.
    The injunction he got affects only Army – not Police or DSS. The important thing is this:
    arrest and flog all the APC thieves in Lagos because stealing is a felony.

      …..(2) Who stole Lagos State’s $40 billion dollars?

      This patently corrupt deal was ostensibly to buy back Lagos state ‘concession rights’
      on the Lekki tolled Expressway, according to Alhaji Raji Fashola, but what the corrupt and
      clever-by-half Raji Fashola did not say is that the land at issue belongs to Lagos state
      and was never sold to Alhaji Bola Tinubu’s companies in the first place.

      Or did Bola Tinubu’s companies invest 35 billion Naira developing the road.

      In other words, by sheer fraud, Raji Fashola paid Bola Tinubu 25 years profit upfront;
      without any work, A lien was then imposed on Lagos state allocation of federal revenue
      for the next 3 years to pay for this 87.5 billion Naira bond debt by Lagos residents,
      on top of another $3.7 billion dollars of debt Raji Fashola has so far incurred,
      without any sustainable project to show for it; a debt equal to the gross future income
      of Lagos state from Nigeria’s federal allocation in the next 3½ years.

        “[On this clamour for a Christian as Lagos state governor],
        we should not introduce something that will start affecting the
        consciousness of the people. We shouldn’t put in the people’s
        consciousness what they were not thinking about before.
        Even if you look at it closely you will find that
        the dominant people in Lagos state are Muslims”.

          @Ola: Although we all know that Alhaji Bola Tinubu does not know much because he didn’t go to school, but the dwarf he appointed as his Attorney-General in Lagos state should let him know now that the game is up. The hour of justice has come. If Bola Tinubu attempts to flee he will be shot, lawfully, because he is wanted by the people for the felony of STEALING. The law of Nigeria says it is
          perfectly lawful to wound or shoot and maim or injure an escaping felon.

      Who stole Lagos State’s $40 billion dollars?

      Between May 1999 and now, Lagos state government has earned $40 billion dollars
      as revenues but the money – less salary and running expenses – was partly shared
      between Bola Tinubu and Raji Fashola under corporate guise in the worst scam ever
      in modern Yoruba history.

      In 2012, Lagos state floated a loan bond of ₦87.5 billion in November to borrow
      at 14.5% interest rate and got public investors to subscribe for repayment with interest
      but once the bond was fully subscribed, Raji Fashola took 40% of that money –
      about 35 billion Naira or so – and handed it over in cash to Bola Ahmed Tinubu,
      via bogus corporate fronts, namely: (a) Lekki Concession Company, (b) ARM company,
      and, (c) Hitech company
      ; in a bogus “buy-back deal” of a supposed concession right
      on the 15-kilometre Lekki Expressway.

    The Army should arrest this useless Judge before arresting Tinubu. The Nigerian judiciary is now a bad joke.

    Kenneth Minimah, now that Buhari is president, what do you think about a carrer change on Monday.

  • JasV

    If he did not give up power which he lost in 2015, he would have been dead by now. He should be thanking Nigeria for not allowing him to die, he should be pitying Nigeria for all the atrocities he and his wide-mouthed rogue of a wife called mama pissy pissy caused the country, indeed nigeria is the victim not this ogogoro drunk barefooted sailor. This is just the beginning of the destruction that jona, mama pissy pissy, their children and their children’s children will continue to enjoy from generation unto generation in Jesus name. Amen.
