Mr. Olukoya Ogungbeje, lawyer to Evans also joined the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Nigeria Police Force, IGP’s Intelligence Response Team (IRT), ACP Abba Kyari and DSP Phillip Rieninwa as respondents in the suit.

The applicant is seeking a declaration that the forceful seizure, confiscation, and sealing of his property by the respondents without any court order is illegal, wrongful and unconstitutional.

In addition, he is asking the court for an order compelling the respondents to immediately and unconditionally unseal and vacate the applicant’s two residential houses located in a highbrow area of Magodo in Lagos.

Other reliefs are an order compelling the respondents to severally and jointly tender an apology to the applicant and to pay him the sum of N1 billion being general and exemplary damages for the alleged forceful seizure and confiscation of the applicant’s properties without the court order.

He also demanded a perpetual injunction restraining the respondents from tampering or taking any action against the applicant or any of his properties in relation to this case.

Some of the properties listed in the application include N50 million cash, two residential duplexes, brigade wrist-watch worth 170,000 dollars, a phone worth 30,000 dollars and five pieces of Saphono Rucci Diamond rings worth 100,000 dollars.
