Impeached Governor of Bayelsa State, Chief D.S.P. Alamieyeseigha, has shifted his battle to the Federal High Court, challenging his arrest and detention and also prayed for his restoration into the government house.


Besides, the former state chief executive is asking the court to determine some constitutional issues arising from the criminal case preferred against him at the British court.


The action was instituted through three senior lawyers, Professor A. B. Kasumu (SAN), Mike Okoye and Mike Ozekhome.


The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Inspector-General of Police and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission were named as defendants in suit no FHC/ABJ/CS/622/2005.


Seeking court order to file and serve the motion on notice for interlocutory injunction along with the originating summons, Alamieyeseigha also sought for interim injunction, restraining the defendants from continuing to arrest and detain him pending the hearing and determination of the motion.


Other reliefs sought include a declaration that any criminal process issued by any court of law or tribunal, whether within Nigeria or outside Nigeria against the former governor, at a time when he enjoyed immunity, from the issue and service of a court process or warrant of arrest was void and unenforceable for any purpose whatsoever by virtue of section 308(1) of the constitution.


An order of mandatory injunction directing Inspector General of Police to immediately return the plaintiff and restore him into his office in Government House, Yenagoa from where he was forcibly and unlawfully removed and placed under arrest since December 9, 2005.


The plaintiff also prayed the court to determine whether he was lawfully detained for the purpose of his being extradited for criminal prosecution in the United Kingdom without the Attorney-General of the Federation applying for and obtaining from the appropriate court in Nigeria a provisional warrant of arrest.
