Looted Items: You Can’t Search Citizens’ Homes Without Court Warrant – Lawyers Tell State Governors

Published

on

They described the attempt by some state governors, who have threatened to use security agents to embark on house-to-house search to recover the stolen items as illegal.

No state governor in Nigeria had the legal or statutory power to invade or barge into homes of citizens under the guise of looking for looted COVID-19 palliatives. This is according to human rights lawyers.

According to SaharaReporters, they described the attempt by some state governors, who have threatened to use security agents to embark on house-to-house search to recover the stolen items as illegal.

According to Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mike Ozekhome, who spoke with SaharaReporters over the issue, the government ought to have been prosecuted for the negligence of their primary duty on people’s welfare and security as stipulated in section 14 of 1999 constitution.

He said the action negated Section 37 of the constitution, which protects the privacy of homes, correspondences, letters and secrecy of every Nigerians without the right of any person, authority or government to invade or come into that premises without the consent of the owners.

He said, “If governors are saying that people have looted government properties one thing becomes clear, looting without permission is a criminal offence. So, no state government can simply take the law or result to self-help and barge into the homes of these people allegedly searching for so-called looted properties.

“They will first go to a court of law and obtain a search warrant before they can enter any homes at all. The search warrant must indicate why they are going to search the house with dignity of people and fair hearing with their right to privacy and family life.”
He berated the governors for hoarding food items meant for the people while thousands of Nigerians were dying of COVID-19 and starvation.

Ozekhome added that it was shameful for the government to tell the world that people have looted palliatives, which was funded by tax payers’ money.

He said, “These palliatives were funded by tax payers’ money since March when COVID-19 pandemic started ravaging our lives and people died in thousands.

“Hunger, poverty, abject penury, melancholy and hopelessness reigned supreme in the land.  These governors heartlessly and shamelessly hoarded the properties meant for the people they govern.

“They were hoarding these items so that later they will rebrand them and put their pictures as their logos particularly for the 2023 elections that are coming up.”

The legal practitioner explained that any Nigerian whose house or property were illegally invaded without a search warrant by security operatives have the right to challenge such action in court.

Another lawyer, Tope Akinyode, who expressed his mind on the issue, said the action was another ploy by the government in cutting corners to get justice.

He said, “If someone takes another person’s property that is stealing and there are legal procedures to follow to prosecute and charge such person to court.

“The court determines whether that person has actually stolen the property or not. Executive fiat or legislation cannot determine the ingredient of stealing has been established unless it has been determined by court and the guilt of an offence cannot be established.”

He said any attempt by the state governments to embark on such action would be tantamount to illegality and exercise in futility.

He added that it was criminal for state governors to hoard what belonged to the people.

“You can only do that if there is a court order that validated such. Yes, in some occasions the security operatives have the right to take some properties as evidence for further interrogation but this is not the case of picking up exhibits for the sake of prosecution or interrogation but is a case of the government wanting to recover some properties belonging to the government,”
 Akinyode added.

It has been revealed that a video of the Lekki shooting that took place on the 20th of October is available.

A panel set up by the Lagos state government to address the issue of Lekki shooting and other related matters has been told that footage of the shooting is available. 

According to NAN, the Management of the Lekki Concession Company, LCC made this disclosure on Friday. 

LCC told the Lagos State Judicial Judicial Panel of Inquiry for Restitution for Victims of SARS and related abuses and Other Matters that the footage of the October 20 shootings of the #EndSARS protesters by the Nigerian Army is available.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Gbolahan Agboluwaje, the Head of the Legal Department of LCC, made the revelation after Abayomi Omomuwa, the Managing Director of LCC had been Abayomi Omomuwa, the Managing Director of Lekki Concession Company, LCC, taking oath to testify before the Lagos Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Friday sworn-in to give evidence before the panel. 

Mr Agboluwaje said that the LCC received a summons from the panel on Wednesday, Oct. 28, to appear before it and was also ordered to present the October 20 footage, an investigation report and any other document.

“We have the footage.

We do not have an investigation report because we know that investigations are ongoing and we have not been able to provide any document,” he said. 

He, however, noted that the LCC was prepared to air the footage before the panel and that there are hours of recordings on the  CCTV footage.

“We had a very short notice and we brought what we were able to lay our hands on,” he said. 

Mr Agboluwaje told the panel that due to the short notice of the summoning, the Managing Director, MD, of LCC, Mr  Omomuwa, would  not be able to testify because the company was yet to hire an external counsel to represent the MD. 

Abiodun Owonikoko (SAN) announced his appearance as the counsel representing the Lagos State Government. 

Responding, the Chairman of the nine-man panel, Justice Doris Okuwobi (Rtd), granted Agboluwaje’s request for a short adjournment. 

Justice Okuwobi noted that the programme of the day for the panel was to visit  the locus (scene of the Lekki Shooting)  and to have proceedings based on their findings from the visit. 

“We were initially to take note of what we see at the locus and today’s proceedings was to be subsequent to what we see there.

“The panel will arise very shortly to visit the locus. The panel noted that it is required of the witness to have a counsel of his choice.

We will not take the proceedings of the visit of the locus until then,” she said. 

NAN reports that as at the time of filing this report, the panel had briefly risen to visit and inspect the Lekki Toll Plaza, the scene of the Oct. 20 shooting. 

The panel is expected to reconvene to hear other petitions after its return from the visit to the tollgate.
