The above matter is coming up tomorrow Wednesday 18th May, 2022 before Federal High Court 9 FCT, Abuja for hearing. It could be recalled that at the last sitting, the Court ruled that, both DSS and NIA should be joined into the matter as necessary parties to come and explain the role they played over the Applicant’s International Passport, how it was lost, and also present their arguments why a new one is not issued.
However, this suit became necessary because, the Applicants want to travel abroad for medical treatment and the Nigeria Immigration Service refused to issue new International Passports to the Applicants which is their statutory responsibility.
2. SHEIKH IBRAHEEM YA’QUB EL-ZAKZAKY (H)
DG DSS & ANR.
This is another matter which was slated for Thursday (next tomorrow) 19th May, 2022 and also for hearing but a definite one.
At the last adjourned date, the Court granted the Respondents an extension of time to regularise their process.
Meanwhile, the Applicants (Allamah Sayyid Ibraheem Zakzaky & Malama Zeenah Ibraheem) sued the Respondents (DG DSS & AGF) before Federal High Court 5 FCT, Abuja over lost/seizure of their International Passport which is unconstitutional and indeed, their act violate Section 41 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) which has provision for right of movement.
We pray for victory of truth over falsehood and justice over tyranny and oppression.
May Allah the Almighty continue to protect Allamah Sayyid Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) and Malama Zeenah Ibrahim wherever they are. May He also grant them lasting healing.
