Melaye had approached the court through his lawyer, Nkem Okoro of Mike Ozekhome chambers, for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights, however the court had refused his application but subsequently fixed Thursday 3rd January for hearing of his plea.
Melaye prayed the court for an interim order of the court directing the police to vacate his residence and remove all blockades in front of the residence to allow his family and political associates has access to him
He also sought an order restraining the police from further threatening his life, arresting him or putting his life in jeopardy pending the determination of the substantive suit.
