The eight suspended members of the Zamfara State House of Assembly have instituted a suit at the Federal High Court seating in Gusau, challenging the breach of their constitutional rights to liberty, human dignity, fair hearing and taking possession of their property without due process.

The lawmakers represented by their counsel Barr. Ibrahim Sani were challenging the Attorney General of the state, the Police and the Department of State Security, DSS for breaching their rights

The Respondents like the police, the DSS, and some others said that they were yet to be served with motion notice. Thereby requested for adjournment of the seating.

However, the Counsel to the eight suspended State lawmakers, Barr. Ibrahim, agreed for a date for the matter to be heard, to allow them to serve the Respondents that said they were not served.

The Presiding judge, Justice Aminu Bappa granted the motion and adjourned the case to April 29th, 2024.

Recall that the suspended lawmakers attempted to impeach Speaker of the House, claiming that the reason was due to Insecurity.
