After his release on November 4, 2011, it would be recalled that Babatunde Omidina, also known as Babasuwe addressed his detention case in a press conference held on November 14 and his counsel, Bamidele Aturu, avowed to fight the abuse of his client's fundamental rights by officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.
Babasuwe sought redress in the Lagos High court today.
For keeping him in custody for more than 48 hours which is against the constitution and for failing to bring out a proof, Justice Yetunde Idowu, has asked the NDLEA to pay him N25million for compensation and also to apologise to him in two national newspapers, all within 21 days.
