“Instead of responding to the Commission’s investigation
Omosore had approached the Federal Capital Territory High Court for the
enforcement of his fundamental human rights,” EFCC spokesman, Wislon Uwujaren
Justice Husseini Baba Yusuf consequently ordered that
Omisore should only be arrested through a due and legal process.
The EFCC thereafter obtained a warrant to effect the arrest
of the politician.
