The members of the Hausa community in Rivers State have taken Governor Wike to court for seizing some trucks and cows from Adamawa state.
They are demanding that the court ask the governor to pay them N100M as compensation for arresting their brothers who came to the state for business. They were arrested alongside their trucks and cows.
Eze Kpaniku, the council of the Hausa community, filed before the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt that his clients have a waiver from the Federal Government, and the governor erred by arresting them.
Eze complained about how his clients with their cows were dumped at the isolation center without food or water.
The presiding judge, Justice E.O.Obile, has fixed June 1 for hearing to allow the plaintiff to serve the notice to the governor.
Recall that the governor arrested them at Rumuigbo, Obio Akpor LGA of the state in the early hours of Friday with their cattle from Adamawa state.
Wike ordered that the men should be prosecuted for disobeying the lockdown.
He equally ordered that their cattle and trucks be sold on auction.
