Operation Positive Identification: Falana Gets Order Against Army

The Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday ordered the Nigerian Army and the Attorney General of the Federation to maintain status quo in respect of their planned Operation Positive Identification.

Justice Rilwan Aikawa made the order at the request of human rights lawyer, Mr Femi Falana (SAN).

Falana had filed a suit seeking to stop the army’s Operation Positive Identification, which requires that all citizens must carry a means of identification to be able to move.

The lawyer argued that such an operation was a violation of constitutional rights to liberty.
In a short ruling on Tuesday, Justice Aikawa ordered the army to maintain status quo pending the hearing and determination of Falana’s suit.

“In view of the agreement between counsel, I hereby order the 1st and 2nd defendants to maintain the status quo pending the determination of this case,” Justice Aikawa held and adjourned the case till November 18, 2019.
