The Federal High Court, Abuja, has slated February 24, 2021, for hearing in a N100 million suit filed by a whistleblower, George Davidson, against the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offenses Commission (ICPC).
Justice Nkeonye Maha, who adjourned the matter in her ruling, hinged the decision on the fact that parties in the suit had yet to be joined.
Also joined in the N100 million suit is a civil servant, Regina Davidson.
It was gathered that Davidson, through his lawyer, A. O. Osawaru, filed a motion on notice dated October 19 for the enforcement of his fundamental rights against his alleged illegal detention by officers of the ICPC.
He was said to have been detained in the commission cell on October 13 without justification until October 24 when he was moved to a police cell at the Federal Secretariat.
He alleged that he was kept in the cell until October 31 when he was released over an information supplied to the anti-corruption agency, through a non-governmental organization, about Dominic, a grade level 9 federal civil servant.
Osawaru, in the application, argued that no court had found the applicant guilty of any offense to warrant such detention.
