A lawyer, Mr. Babatunde Olokun, has slammed a N10 million suit on Senator Buruji Kashamu.Olokun is pressing charges against Kashamu over alleged unlawful arrest, continuous threat to life, harassment and infringement on his fundamental human rights.Olokun, who filed the application at the Federal High Court in Abuja, alleged that Kashamu was threatening his life through phone calls.He asked the court to declare the acts unconstitutional and violation of his rights.The lawyer also prayed the court to stop Kashamu from using the police or any other law enforcement agent to harass, intimidate, molest or interfere with his personal liberty.

When the matter was called on Wednesday, Counsel to Olokun, Mr. Stanley Iji, prayed court for a short adjournment, saying the respondents have not been served with the processes.Justice Nnamdi Dimgba noted that this was the second time the applicant has failed to serve the processes on the respondents.The respondents are Kashamu, Onamusi Onadeko and the Inspector-General of Police.Dimgba warned that the case would be struck out on the next adjourned date if Olokun failed to serve the processes on Kashamu and others.Source: The Nation
