19 February 2016, 10:56

Abuja - A Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday restrained the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and others from arresting the Peoples Democratic Party’s National Secretary Prof. Wale Oladipo, reports Punch.

Justice James Tsoho in his ruling on an oral application by Oladipo on Thursday urged all parties in the suit to maintain status quo.

Also affected by the judge’s order for the maintenance of status quo are the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC), the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase and the Department of State Services (DSS).

The judge, upon a request by Oladipo’s lawyer Ajibola Oluyede, directed parties in the fundamental right enforcement application by the PDP National Secretary to maintain status quo by sustaining the current situation until the determination of the case.

Oladipo had filed the suit on February 8 on the ground that he had received  a text message on his mobile telephone from somebody, who claimed to be an operative of the EFCC, attached to the Asset Tracing and Recovery Unit.

Oladipo alleged that he was being harassed and intimidated on the basis of funds which he received from members of the PDP.
