Arrest: Court grants Tinubu restraining order


A Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday granted an interim injunction restraining the Chief of Army Staff, his privies, agents and servants from arresting, detaining, harassing or intimidating former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, pending the determination of the motion on notice.
Tinubu had approached the court on March 25 through his lawyer, Femi Falana, seeking the enforcement of his fundamental human rights.
In the restraining order granted by Presiding Judge, J.T. Tsoho, the interim injunction 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. Furthermore, the military or its agents are restrained from preventing him from participating in the 2015 general elections.
The determination of the motion on notice in the matter between Tinubu and the Chief of Army Staff was moved to March 31.
In the past two weeks, news of the planned arrest of Tinubu had circulated in the media.
