High Court Abuja ordered DSS to release five worshipers arrested at Dunamis International Gos...jpg

The Federal High Court Abuja has ordered the Department of State Services to release five worshipers who were arrested at Dunamis International Gospel Centre on July 4 for allegedly wearing t-shirts with alleged inciting inscriptions.


Recall that the DSS had arrested some activists during the church’s service on Sunday for wearing “BuhariMustGo” shirts.

Following the development, the applicants, Ben Manasseh, Anene Udoka, Henry Nwodo, Samuel Larry and Samuel Gabriel, filed their separate suits at the Federal High Court, Abuja.

They had sued the DSS, President Muhammadu Buhari, the church’s pastor-in-charge, Pastor Paul Enenche and others for alleged unlawful arrest and detention.

The plaintiffs, who urged the court to declare their arrest and detention unlawful also asked the court to award N10 million, each, in damages, for the violation of their fundamental rights.

However, Justice Anwuli Chikere while delivering Judgement on Monday ordered that the DSS to release the applicants with immediate effect.
