The plaintiff are, however, demanding the sum of N100,000,000 as compensation for the arrest of their kinsmen who were in the state on a business trip alongside their cows and trucks.

Justice E.O. Obile fixed the date to allow the plaintiff to put Gov Wike on notice over the case. Eze Kpaniku who is the Counsel for the arrested Northerners, claimed that they had waivers from the Federal Government and the Governor was wrong to have arrested them.

The counsel also lamented that both his clients and their cows have been arrested and dumped at the Isolation centre without food and medication for days.

In a similar charge the Leader of Northern Community in Rivers State, Alhaji Musa Saidu also condemned the arrest and demanded the unconditional release of the arrested persons.
