Two Jos-based businessmen, Moses Dalyop and Abdulmumuni Yakubu, have dragged the Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Baba to court over their alleged unlawful arrest and detention, demanding N10 billion as damages.
The businessmen, in the suit filed by their lawyer, Gyang Zi, are seeking the court’s enforcement of their fundamental human rights, alleging unlawful arrest, assault, torture, detention, embarrassment, harassment, pain, and inconveniences caused to them.
Other respondents in the suit filed at the Plateau High Court in Jos are the Nigerian Police Force, DCP Olatunji Disu, and Chuangyue Industrial Nig. Ltd, and Chen Taohong.
In the process filed on Friday and made available to newsmen in Jos, the claimants who have been in police detention for one week, urged the court to declare their detention unlawful.

They also urged the court to give an order of perpetual injunction restraining the respondents either by themselves, servants, privies, or officers from further arresting, torturing, humiliating, harassing, threatening, or detaining them in connection with the case.

The claimants further demanded an order directing the respondents to release them from their custody forthwith.
Grounds upon which the reliefs were sought were that the two claimants were arrested on Jan. 13 and Jan. 14, respectively by men of the Police Force Intelligence Unit and were taken to A Division Police station, Jos.

According to the Affidavit deposed, they were later moved to FCT, Abuja, and detained in the custody of DCP Olatunji Disu, Officer in charge of the Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT).
Zi said that his clients were arrested based on the complaint of the Chuangyue Industrial Nig. LTD and Chen Taohong to IRT.
Counsel to the complainants, Mr. Gyang Zi who filed the suit described the conduct of the respondents against his clients as a violation of the provision of chapter IV of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended.
Zi argued that the detention of his clients violated their fundamental rights before the eyes of the law.

The legal practitioner explained that Ellipse Industries Limited and Chuangyue Industrial Nig LTD and Chen Taohong had a joint venture agreement.
Based on the terms of the agreement, Ellipse Industries Limited was entitled to 30 percent of mined products while Chuangyue Industrial Nigeria Limited is entitled to 70 percent.
However, the venture agreement between the parties in dispute later became a subject of misunderstanding leading to the 4th and 5th defendants’ business partners engaging the men of the Nigeria Police to arrest and detain the applicants.
