Lawyer sues NASS over operation positive identification


A human rights activist and lawyer, Chief Malcolm Omirhobo, yesterday filed a suit before a Federal High Court, Lagos challenging the powers of the National Assembly to approve the military operation positive identification despite a subsisting order of court suspending the exercise.

The plaintiff, in his originating, summon brought pursuant to Order 3, Rules 6,7 and 9 of the Federal High Court Civil Procedure, prayed the court to declare that the National Assembly has no power under the law to approve operation positive identification.

Other defendants in the suit include the Lagos State government, Federal Government, President Muhammadu Buhari, National Assembly, Nigerian Army and the inspector general of police.

Omirhobo is praying the court to declare that it is improper and unconstitutional for the National Assembly to give the approval to carry on with the military exercise in Lagos State and throughout the country while there is a subsisting court order to suspend it.
