Justice Eleojo Enenche of the FCT High Court as being unlawful, unconstitutional, illegal and a violation of his fundamental human rights as guaranteed by the Nigerian Constitution, was awarded the sum of 10 million Naira as compensation for his unlawful, unconstitutional arrest and detention.

The court also ordered that 2.8 million naira; 181,000 naira and the Lexus jeep which the police unduly collected from the Lawyer be refunded and released to him immediately.
