Justice Abdulaziz Anka dismissed the objections of Emmanuel Eze, the counsel for the third and fourth respondents, and agreed with counsel to Evans, Olukoya Ogungbeje, that service on the first and second respondents had been properly effected.

In the application, Evans, is challenging his continued detention since June 10 without arraignment, claiming that his parade on June 11 before journalists at the Lagos police command headquarters in Ikeja, without a court order, is unconstitutional and illegal.

Evans wants the court to award him 300 million naira as exemplary damages for his alleged illegal detention and the alleged harm caused by his media trial.

He has also asked the court to order the police authorities to immediately arraign him before a law court, or release him from custody.
