[size=15pt]Court Approves Re-commencement of Suit Against Tinubu Over Murder of Funsho Williams[/size]
A Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday granted an application to re-list a suit seeking the prosecution of National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu and others over the gruesome murder of late Funsho Williams.

Williams, a former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State was murdered at his residence in Lagos in June 2006.

Trial judge, Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia had earlier struck out the suit which was filed by a former detainee in the Williams’ murder, Bashir Junaid.

The judge had struck out the suit for want of diligent prosecution. But on Monday, the judge granted an application to re-list the suit.

Junaid had gone to court seeking for an order of mandamus to compel the Inspector-General of Police, to re-open investigations into Funsho Williams murder.

The motion to re-list the suit was filed by the applicant’s lawyer, Tunji Adesheye.

Arguing the motion, Adesheye informed the court that his client had effected personal service of the concurrent writ of summons on the defendants that reside outside the court’s jurisdiction.

Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia, had earlier granted leave to the applicant to effect personal service of the concurrent writ of summons in the suit on the Inspector General of Police (IGP) by substituted means.

Other defendants affected by the court’s order included former IGP, Sunday Ehindero; Attorney General of the Federation and the PDP.

In the suit, the applicant is praying the court to compel the Attorney General of the Federation, to direct the appropriate organ in the Criminal Justice Administration in the country to commence prosecution of the alleged suspects in the murder of Engineer Funsho Williams.

He is also praying for a declaration that all defendants in the suit should pay him compensation for his illegal detention and the psychological trauma he suffered for a period of over one year under the unmitigated actions of the defendants both jointly and severally and for their acts of commission and omission over the said illegal detention and his unlawful incarceration over the murder.

Besides, Junaid is asking for a claim of N5 billion as both compensatory and exemplary damages against the defendants for their actions or inaction over his illegal detention and dehumanization over the murder of the deceased.

Listed as co-defendants in the suit are the Inspector-General of Police, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Sunday Ehindero (former I.G.P & I.P.O. of Funsho Williams’ murder case), Attorney-General of the Federation, Modupe Shasore and the PDP.

Others are Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Muiz Banire, Babatunde Edu, Dele Alake, and Henry Oladele Ajomale.

The matter has been adjourned till September 29.

Tinubu can be likened to the little bird nza who so forgot himself after a heavy meal that he challenged his Chi to a wrestling match.

Some of you guys lack the ability to distinguish between those who are partisan supporters and those who are patriotic supporters.

I have many posts here where I have voiced my opposition to some of Tinubu's positions just as I have posts where I have supported him.

Try go through my posts so you know that I deal with issues and not personalities.
