Court grants motion by ‘Black Axe’ to enforce fundamental human rights
A Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday partly granted a motion by members of the Neo Black Movement of Africa (NBM), aka Black Axe seeking enforcement of their fundamental right.
Justice Mohammed Yunusa granted an order for a declaration that the applicant, being a duly registered incorporated trustee, had a right to peaceful assembly and association.
It will be recalled that the applicants had filed the suit in August under the aegis of Registered Trustees of NBM of Africa.
They had filed the suit alongside three members namely, Oritsebemigho Eyeoyibo, Great Albert and Dr Mayor Onyebuyeke, for enforcement of their rights under order 2 rules 1 to 5 of the fundamental rights enforcement procedure rules.
