8.    AN ORDER that the Respondents pay the cost of this action.

And such further order or orders as this Honourable Court may deem fit to make in the circumstance.

ISSUES FOR DETERMINATION

1.    Whether the Applicant has properly brought the presentation before this Honourable Court?

2.    Whether the slapping of the poor Nigerian girl by the 1st respondent is a violation of her Fundamental Rights as enshrined in Chapter IV of 1999 Constitution, Africa and Charter of Human and People’s Rights and United Nation declaration of Human Rights?

Issue (1)

The Applicant will rely on the preamble to the Fundamental Rights Enforcement Procedure Rules 2009.

PREP RULE 2009
Preamble

3d.    The Court shall proactively pursue enhanced access to justice for all classes of litigants, especially the poor, the illiterate, the uninformed, the vulnerable, the incarcerated and the unrepresented.

3e.    “The Court shall encourage and welcome public interest litigation in the human rights field and no human rights case may be dismissed or struck out for want of locus stendi. In particular, human rights activities, advocates or groups as well any non-govenrmental organisations, may institute application on behalf of any potential applicant, in human right litigation, the applicant may include any of the following”.

i)    Anyone acting in his own interests

ii)    Anyone acting on behalf of another person”.

We rely further on the case of A.G Lagos V.A.G Federation (2005) I MJSC Page 15 Ratio 16
“A legal right is a right cognizable in law, it means a right recognized by law and capable of being enforced by the Plaintiff. It is a right of a party recognized by and protected by law, the violation of which would be legal wrong done to the interest of the Plaintiff, even though no action is  taken’’

functions” 
“…. It can best be achieved by permitting any person to put the judicial machinery in motion in Nigeria whereby any citizen could bring an action in respect of a public derelict. Thus, the requirement of Locus Standi becomes unnecessary in constitutional issues as it will merely impede judicial
We humbly urge this Honourable Court to hold that the applicant has properly brought this action on behalf of the poor Nigeria girl..

Issue 2

Whether the action of the respondent against “Miss Justice” is a violation of her fundamental as enshrined in Chapter IV of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria, African Charter on Human and People’s Right and Universal Declaration on Human Right of United Nations Relating.

We rely of fundamental right enforcement procedure rules (2009) preamble 3(d) States

3d.    The Court shall proactively pursue enhanced access to justice for all classes of litigants, especially the poor, the illiterate, the uninformed, the vulnerable, the incarcerated and the unrepresented.

My lord, the Supreme Court held in Chief Chief(Mrs.) Olufunmilayo Ransom – Kuti & Ors Vs. Attorney – General Federation (1985) 5 NWLR P=10) at 211 at 229-230 were Eso J.S.C. Examined, the nature Fundamental Rights as follows.

 “This is no doubt a right guaranteed to everyone including the appellants by the constitution. But what is the nature of a Fundamental Right? It is a right which stands above the ordinary laws of the land and which in fact is antecedent to the political society itself. It is a primary condition to a civilized existence and what has been done by our constitution.

On burden of proof on infringement of fundamental right in once a citizen has shown that any of his fundamental rights has been infringed, the burden is on the infringing body or authority or person to establish that the denial of the right was justified by law. See Director of SSS V OLISA AGBAKOBA(1993)3NWLR PT 595 314 at 339 Ratio 16

On issue of damages the primary object of an award of damages is to compensate the plaintiff victim for harm done to him, the secondary object is to punish the defendant for his conduct in inflicting harm on a plaintiff-victim particularly when the defendant’s conduct is sufficiently outrageous to merit punishment such as in this case it discloses malice, vendetta, cruelty, insolence, oppression and  flagrant disregard to law and humanity. See ELIOCHIN NIGERIA LIMITED Vs MBADIWE (1986)1 NWLR PT 14 47section 49 ratio 5-6
   
See also F R A Williams Daily Time of Nigeria SC 21/1987

We rely further on the celebrated case of Ojukwu Vs Gov. of Lagos (1986)1NWLR PT 18 550-694 at 623 ratio 24
where the Supreme Court upheld the award of Examplary damages as punitive measure to deter a reckless Defendant from further recklessness and bring him under the law of the land.

CONCLUSION

My lord, the ship of our social, historical and legal development is on the move, it berths once lifetime on each of every of  our harbor, it has berthed on yours with this case, like the ship what cargo we load will depend on the direction she will navigate. The instant case is a case of glaring oppression, abusive of power, cannibalism, totalitarianism and social Darwinism all these will not lead our country to the enviable height we all many at times dream about for our self and children yet unborn.

I urge you to seize this opportunity and load a cargo of justice, fare play, egalitarianism on this ship and she will move in the right direction, a direction we can proudly hand over to our children and generation yet unborn.

I humbly urge this court to grant all the reliefs sought.

U ARE SIMPLY A FOOL TO BE

U ARE SIMPLY A FOOL TO BE GLORIFYING UK IN NIG. ISSUES. YOU AV NOT TRAVELED B4 N IF U AV IT HAZ TOT U NOFIN. U HAVE TO EDUCATION. FOOLISH FOOL. SORRY THO. I JUST HATE NIGERIANS THAT MAGNIFY ABROAD+

Talk with knowledge of the truth

One of the most dangerous thing to do is slander a spiritual authority whether or not you are right.jusus didn't beat to cast out demons but he floged the hell out of some scums who abused the temple.I'm sure if it was in nigeria this lawyer would have draged him to court for abuse of human rights. Bishop didn't slap this girl for issue of witchcraft but for blaspheming the name of JESUS. And for you scum muslims running your mouths in what is not your business, don't you see what is happening to america bcos of a movie against your so called prophet? If christians are condeming their own you people shld keep quiet bcos ur religion is dat of pouring human blood and wasting people all over the world. You call it peace in words but in acts it violent and devilish.

justice

The barrister hjas all the right in d world 2 take up dis case 4 a share of d damages, alterall he took an oath to uphold justice and d constitution always... D so calle "bishop" has no right to slap anyone. Didn't Jesus Christ say "he who has not sin cast the first stone" abi e nor dey d bishop Bible... Mtsheeew. If I were the 1, I'd ask for 2 billion and 2 of his Jets!

That is insane

He should come to US and slap me, make him seec wetin go happen to him Jet Planes and all, bullshit, that is why Nigeria has not changed one bit, he is not above the law, if it is God that slpas the girls visibly, then it understandable but he is man, made in the same dust like me and you. God's name should not be potrayed as been arrogant, look at the woman with the issue of blood or let say the Leper. Nigerians that worships their Pastors should learn from this, he is not God but just a man like me and you, Ignorance....You cant just slap someone because they say they witches, is that how God potrayed himself, the girls first deserves an apology for that.wat the heck

let jesus

my felow pple,let jesus decide in dis issue

The lawyer is not hungry.

This is in response to the man who wrote about the poor hungry barrister. Its a pity that he is blind to the fact that a wrong has been done against the girl. Even if she were actually a witch, that does not give even the pope the right to slap anyone it is barbaric. Oyedepo, is not above the law he is a human the only difference is that he has been able to enrich himself with money from tithes and offering under the guise of being a servant of God. Its a pity he is not alone, 90% of pastors are now selling the words of God and the financial benefits that accrue to them goes for personal use. In Deutronomy we were asked to give to the men of God as they had nothing but today they have deviated from the supposed use of the tithes and offerings (catering for the widows and less privileged) to enriching them selves and living like Gods. Its a shame that people listen to these preachers and forget the words of God which are given to us in the bible. Oyedepo must be made to face the music.

Pastor Tunji, You are in Order

Pastor Tunji, you are quite in order. Bishop Oyedepo should admit his guilt and apologize accordingly. Afterall, it's human to err and divine to forgive. Period!

the signs

Dis is just d end times. We r all here judging n pointing fingers, have we all checked our lives? R we all going to make heaven? Dese r d questions we should be asking ourselves. Don't judge ppl n let God b d judge.

Dangerous grounds

This world is larger than we think we know.
Some people and their generations suffer due to careless talks and blasphemous talks. wetin u no sabi the front and back, make you keep quiet.
Oyedepo slap person say na GOD sendam? if no no like the slap, then charge am to GOD. HE get court too.

All this jabbings wey una dey hammer each other no make sense. No person papa here never do wrong before. And no person here go share for the 2 billion even if dem award it.
If na slap go remove witch, make e removam. But i feel say this na setup. na so dem take set up Michael Jackson just to rip am

Mess mess mess

Mess mess mess

A poor hungry Barrister

A poor hungry Barrister seeking attention, money and chasing vague claims. I wish him luck in his quest to become rich. 2 Billion for what? Damages or repair?

OYEDEPO IS A DISGRACE TO CHRISTIANITY!

Oyedepo has just showed the world that he is nothing but a wicked and heartless man! He is not following the footsteps of Christ! Why did Jesus not slap the man who was possesed with demons? Oyedepo is nothing but a shame to the christian faith!

You are a fool! May God

You are a fool! May God punish you and that fake bishop of yours. Why did Jesus christ not slap the man that was possesed with demons? Mumu like you! Oyedepo is a disgrace to christianity!

you are such a fool! who the

you are such a fool! who the hell is Bishop Oyedepo? is he above the law? You are a moron! What a fake bishop he is. He is a disgrace to christianity! Why did Jesus not slap the man that was possessed with demons? You are the big MUMU!

OYEDEPO SHOULD ADMIT HE'S FAULTY

I first heard of a slap, which in my own coinage I called, 'corporate slap' from a boss to his subordinate in 1991 when my father's cousin was working for the billionaire, Mike Adenuga Jr. Recently, I heard that the young Jimoh Ibrahim is also in the same habit of slapping workers. Now, it's a minister, in the person of David O. Oyedepo. If this acclaimed preacher loves peace(Romans 12:18), let him admit his error with compensations. Oyedepo has contravened the Scriptures in Romans 14:16, 2nd Corinthians 6:3 and Ephesians 6:4. So, this man must repent. So, he must also not see the victim of the slap and her lawyer as enemies (Galatians 4:6). He must pray for them if he's truly conquered anger and temperament.

You Faithful MUMU

Anonymous(cowardly) Idiot!

Insult to religion ke? Boko Haram bomb U n ur deranged pastor into oblivion! Who on Earth has never insulted another man's religion? Ur shit filled mouth! Idiotic fanatic!

RE: best

U bloody idiot, Elijah was not a christian!

RE:IBE

@IBE U re an idiot, u shldnt try to draw comparison bout what happend @oyedepo church n what wld have happend in a mosque. Islam is a violent religion n christianity is renowned 4 affection n humility. U probably practice a brand of christainity with pagan affiliation.

Mr barrister

You have crossed the line with God. U fight God and not his servant. You shall receive Gods ultimate punishment in due time. Also, the so called girl too. Extorting two billion naira will not pinch the destiny of the servant of God and you will not win this case but waste your time. If you know what is good for you, save your face before its too late. If you are broke, Papa can dash you 2billion but don't try to be a charge and bail lawyer.

Get it right

Hello there! I was in that meeting during Shiloh 2010. People should stop all these miss information and for the ones that have been misled to comment negatively because of SR dubious cut and paste may God forgive YOU! It was not a deliverance session, it was an altar call and the lady came out but later her own witch for Jesus which was a Sacrilege, when the bible said suffer not a witch to live - hence that reaction to her blasphemous statement.
And mind you the Customary system prohibits blasphemy by section 204 of Nigeria's Criminal Code. Section 204 is entitled "Insult to religion"

This is an unfortunate

This is an unfortunate incident. One has to keep their attitude in check especially public figures. So you have to be patient and you must be composed. Such incidents could damage public image. During election we get to hear so many scandals of candidates. A background check is necessary. For employers going for Criminal Background Check is important before hiring someone new.

This is a sensitive issue and

This is a sensitive issue and we need 2 thread with caution
Even though Ǻ♍ not a lawyer,bt i knw dat assault is intentional application of force on another person.since,it was an altar call and d lady came out of her own volition. dnt tink this issue shld be taken 2 dis level.

think

if this was the days of Elijah someone would have been dead by now, just that we are living in an hour of grace does not permit some funny human beings to take God and His people for granted

No One is ABOVE THE LAW

I think this is a good thing for our country, if a powerful man like oyedepo can be summoned to court over slapping a girl who no one knows. i think its great. The case is trivial anyway,this happens in every school, church and all. But as Christians the bible said our light should be seen as something good and praiseworthy. And many people have found this slapping controversial, judgement is said to start from the alter, so yeah let an hearing be opened to look into Dr oyedrpo's conduct.

I think for long most of us Christians has taken God for granted, this is because we dont have the fear of God.. i was in that meeting and i saw all that happened, you people just cut and pest the part that suites your stupid acts... Come does any of you running your mouth fear God, do you know who a "witch" is and this lady on her own came out in the house of God to say that she is a witch for Jesus, no body called her out, please can you tell me what will happen to her if she goes to a Mosque to say that she is a prostitute for Mohamed or profane the name of Allah. will she not be killed immediately and buried there, yet all of you Muslims and like come out to talk nonsense
