Femi Falana Seeks Mbu's Removal. by Timilehin3(m): 2:44am On Mar 06, 2015
A lawyer-turned activist, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), has offered to represent a lawyer, Mr. Tope Alabi, who is praying the Federal High Court in Lagos to strip the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG), Mbu Joseph Mbu, of his rank and declare his office vacant for allegedly abusing his powers.
During Thursday’s hearing, Falana announced appearance for the plaintiff, and moved an ex-parte application on his client’s behalf.
The application was for leave to serve the Police Service Commission with the suit in Abuja. “We have a motion for leave to serve the third respondent outside jurisdiction,” Falana said. Justice Ibrahim Buba granted the application. The plaintiff also filed three other applications which have not been heard . They are a motion for interim injunction restraining Mbu from giving any orders to officers under him during the general election pending the hearing of the plaintiff’s motion for interlocutory injunction .
The motion for interlocutory injunction is seeking to restrain Mbu from giving any orders pending the hearing of the substantive suit.
The plaintiff also has a pending application seeking to abridge the time within which the suit will be heard and determined in view of its urgency.
In the substantive suit, numbered FHC/L/CS/149/15, the plaintiff is seeking a declaration that the first defendant (Mbu ) “is unfit to be a police officer in Nigeria.” It followed Mbu’s alleged threat to kill 20 innocent civilians for any policeman killed during the general election .
The plaintiff is praying the court to direct the Inspector- General of Police, Suleiman Abba, the Police Service Commission and the Attorney-General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke (SAN) (who are the second to fourth defendants ) to declare Mbu's office vacant and replace him without further delay.
Alabi said Mbu, as a senior police officer, swore to uphold the rule of law and abide by the Constitution, but has allegedly been behaving as if he is above the law .

He is one of the useless unruly tyrant I've ever seen wearing the police uniform as a AIG.

I disagree with your point .
Femi Falana , on the contrary , is the only lawyer with passion for law practice in Nigeria today.
What he does most times is to set a precedence for most cases which were never fully interpreted earlier by the judiciary.
You may see it as time wasting , but in actual fact, he's exercising his right in a Democratic setting to the fullest.

removing mbu is like telling APC/buhari to reject tinubu's stolen money

Mbu is a destroyer and a boko haram in disguise who knows if he has imported boko haram to Lagos because for inciting the police who are always trigger happy to sporadically drop 20 civilians is an absurd and incoherent statement that must not be trivialize in the face of the law, I humbly apply that Mbu be relegated of if possible be given a compulsory retirement as he is not fit and proper to continue to hold is position as AIG Zone 2. Look at the level of his disobedient to law and order at lekki toll gate, a person of his status that suppose to be an enforcer of the law.
