The Federal High Court in Abuja, on Monday, awarded the sum of N15 million against the Nigeria police over the alleged killings of three members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN).
Justice Taiwo Taiwo, in his ruling, also instructed the National Hospital, Abuja, to immediately release the three corpses in its morgue.
Justice Taiwo added that each of the applicants must be paid the sum of N5 million as compensation for the killings.
The judge, however, did not grant the prayer that the Nigeria police should tender an apology in two national newspapers.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Inspector General of Police is the 1st respondent while the medical directors of National Hospital, Abuja, and Asokoro District Hospital are both 2nd respondent in the four separate charges.
Suleiman Shehu, Mahdi Musa, Bilyaminu Abubakar Faska and Askari Hassan were alleged to have been killed by agents of the first respondent on July 22, 2019 while on a peaceful protest over the detention of Islamic Leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.
While the bodies of Suleiman Shehu, Mahdi Musa and Bilyaminu Abubakar Faska were alleged to have been deposited at the National Hospital, Abuja, the body of Askari Hassan was alleged to have been kept in Asokoro District Hospital.
The applicants who are said to be brothers of the deceased in the suit, are Ibrahim Abdullahi, Ahmad Musa, Yusuf Faska and Said Haruna respectively.
