Court stops arrest of Senator Omo-Agege

 

An Abuja High Court has granted Ovie Omo-Agege, senator representing Delta central, an interim order restraining the police, the Department of Sate Services (DSS) and other law enforcement bodies from arresting him.

Omo-Agege had on Wednesday allegedly stormed the senate with suspected hoodlums who made away with the mace.

Few hours later, the suspended lawmaker, who was later arrested after the raid denied claims that he staged the incident.

However, Omo-Agege’s lawyers approached the court on Thursday to seek an interim injunction against arrest or detention of the senator.
