Court Orders Police To Pay Monarch N3m Compensation.

Rivers State High Court sitting in Port Harcourt has ruled that the Nigeria Police should compensate EzeEkpeye Logbo, Kelvin Anugwo, with the sum of N3 million for unlawfully arresting and detaining him for over 82 days in connection with the death of the late Ahoada Divisional Police officer, SP BakoAmbgashim.

Justice A.M. Oriye, the presiding judge, also mandated the police to issue a public apology to Eze Anugwo in a national newspaper for violating his fundamental rights.

The court also issued an injunction barring the police from further arresting, threatening, or harassing the applicant regarding the death of the late SP Ambgashim, stressing that, additional sum of N200,000 was awarded to the applicant for the breach of his fundamental human rights.

This is coming after Angbashim was murdered in Ahoada East Local Government Area of the state by suspected cultists while returning from an operation.

However, the court freed many of the arrested suspects.
