The influential APC politician, who filed his case before Justice Musa Kurya of the Jos Federal High Court, is demanding for N1.25 billion as general damages for the action.
Gov. Okorocha, through his counsel, Mr Markus Saleh (SAN), had told the court that on May 3, the respondents had invaded his home in Jos and held his family members and staff hostage in a search conducted without any court warrant.
Okorocha also prayed the court for a perpetual injunction restraining the respondents from further doing anything as such in his homes across the country.
Consequently, he asked the court to order the respondents to pay him the one billion Naira as general damages and N25 million as cost of instituting the case.
The counsel to the respondents, Mr Wale Adesola (SAN), was not in court and no reason for his absence was given.
The Judge, Justice Kurya, however, allowed him to move the motion after ruling on the application. Nonetheless, the motion, Saleh asked for a date to enable the respondents to respond to his amended statement and for him to also reply after their responses.
Kurya, who granted the prayers, then adjourned the case to Jan. 24, 2019 for adoption of final written addresses by all parties in the case.
