The former chairman of Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun state,  Engr  Bayo Dayo has filed an appeal against the ruling of an Ogun state high court sitting in Ijebu-Ode dismissing suits filed against former Senator for Ogun East, Prince Buruji Kashamu and the Police.

Engineer Bayo Dayo in the notice of appeal obtained by Salient Times, expressed dissatisfaction over the court judgement against him and therefore asked the appeal court to quash the ruling.

It could be recalled that an Ogun State High Court sitting in Ijebu-Ode, Ijebu Ode Local Government Area of the state last  Thursday dismissed two suits filed by Engr. Adebayo Dayo and his son, Bola.

The duo had filed two separate suits against Police and Senator Buruji Kashamu alleging that their Fundamental rights to freedom of movement, association and to own properties in any part of the country were about to be breached.

In the suits number HCJ/64/2020 and HCJ/65/2020,  Dayo and his son, Bola, asked the court to restrain the Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG Zone 2), the Commissioner of Police, Ogun State  and the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Ijebu-Igbo, Ogun State, from arresting and detaining them over the complaints made against them by Senator Kashamu.

Delivering judgment in the two cases, the Honourable Justice O.S Olusanya found that both suits were an abuse of court processes and dismissed them.

He also awarded a cost of N150,000 against Dayo and N100,000 against Bola.

But in the notice of appeal, Engr Bayo Dayo was said to be dissatisfied over the judgement

The Appellant, Engr Bayo Dayo stated that the trial court erred in law to have held that the first respondent has the right to investigate any allegation of crime  

He also argue that there is no justifiable suspicion that the applicant committed any crime from the petition of the 2nd respondent to the 1st respondent
