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.

Jesus is Lord! The greatest

Jesus is Lord! The greatest commandment is Love. Jesus was killed by man, He gave His life for the forgiveness all every humans sins. He died and rose again on the 3rd day. God showed Man (all humans) that through Jesus there is the forgiveness of sins and through Him, only, there is life eternal after death.
Any1 that doesn't believe in Jesus, His death and His resurrection shall NOT SEE ETERNITY!
Jesus can forgive your Sins, whoever who are ( pastor, girl slapped, lawyer , Christain, moslem, commentators) if you believe in Him, give your life to Him and are born again into a new Spiritual being for Heaven and not earth.
Only Jesus can save a man from God wrath and judgement for when He says; He who has the Son has the witness in himself and has Life; He who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
NO 1 CAN GET INTO HEAVEN EXCEPT THROUGH JESUS!

this is just the beginning of the revelation.....

Standby you all - this is just the beginning of the REVELATION of wolves in the image of the sheep. Reverend King is DOWN!, Bishop Oyedepo is going DOWN! ( ofcourse he has money and government looters in his church who can teach him how to sway justice, so anything can happen at the end of the day in this case). Who is NEXT to go DOWN? Reverend Fireman, Lords Chosen, TB Joshua, etc, watch out!!! Any one of you might be put up next for EVICTION!!! from the Church and Instant Miracle Business....

All the facts of the case?

It is shocking to read some of these comments are more emotional and sentimental rather than factual. So what's wrong with the lawyer standing up for a defenceless Nigerian? After all, Gani was challenged and vilified for many years? Has anyone bothered to ask the question of the girl's medical and mental condition and her actions? For the Bishop, would Christ have done what he did, and are we not supposed to be Christ like?

We need more intelligent discussions and points on this forum.

you have every right to take

you have every right to take your teacher to court for slapping or flogging. you dont do it because you are not aware of your fundamental human right. and for your 'man of God', just answer the question posed in that case: why he didnt call out contract inflators, bank managers defrauding their banks, election rigging politicians, cultist students in the congregation. or these are not sinful acts?.

fake pastor who slaps and boast of his wealth.

It is u who should not run your mouth any how. These so called fake men of God insults God. He slapped a girl even if she is a witch, did jesus slap mary mandalene? He wasn't even sorry about it instead he went on and on saying he would slap again if given the opportunity. May God forgive him because he is anti christ. Let him call for witches again I bet to come out and he slaps m I will show him how troublesome a niger deltan can be, I will slap dat ego off his brains.jesus was d son of God yet very humble and not proud.

how many of ur teacher in

how many of ur teacher in secondary school have u taken to court for flogging or slapping u, mr when it come to men of God dont be too forward to run ur mouth ( public assault) lol

not so dear!

Even if she blasphemed. Is that y. A reputable man of God should acct that way?remember christ n d way he handled d pharisees,scribbees,chief priest n d elders in his own time.xtainity is not a religion of violence no matter d provocation

Power drunk Bishop

Mr Charles I beg you shut your dirty trap up. Gullible so called christians. Even the man possessed with legions of demon was treated with respect by Christ. What of Mary magdalene or Peter, who was with Christ yet denied him....why didn't Christ slap the his tormentors.....He who is without sin should cast the first stone..and the prince of prince didn't cast any stone either...pastor oyedepo I hope you don't end in Damnation with all your show of wealth and power...evil or good only God knows because what you are exhibiting is pride not power as Jesus teaches...Take a clue from daddy Adeboye and papa Kumuyi. Your wealth is beginning to stink..repent!

Why won't he, he has people's

Why won't he, he has people's money at his disposal he should be investigated how he come about with all that money and if proven it's from the, this suppose to be God's money and it should be for Charity purpose to help humanity not for him to use the money to oppress those he used to enrich himself by using Tithe strategy. God will pay him and those he use to oppress people one day, Amen.

You are stupid

You are stupid, you and your generation. You are to most foolish person there is. Fools are better than you.i WOUNDER who gave birth to you. May God help you.

BRIAN SMITH

@ Brain Smith, STFU !!!!, I dont believe that is your real name and if you are the so called Bishop, STFU too. I'm sure you know what that means. The Bishop cant do that in a civilized world if he did, he will pay dearly for it in a court of LAW, which we do not have in Naija. I pray to GOD, yes, the same GOD that he says that he is serving, that he pays for this criminal act he melted out to that innocent girl. If that had been my daughter, I would have shot him . AMEN !!!

A case of rape filed against prophet muhammad at Strasbourg

@ Yemi, for your information, a case against your prophet muhammad has been filed at the Human Rights Court in Strasbourg this morning. Hopefully, he will be condenmened by no nonsense European judges, who do not give a damn. The case against him was rape and sexual molestation of a 9 year old Aisha, whom he later forced into marriage, and sexually molested for 30 years-pathetic. This a typical case of PAEDOPHILE. Evil is evil, it dosen't matter who was involved, prophet or no prophet. Him that comes to equity must come with clean hands. Your so called prophet muhammad was a mere man, and a self acclaimed prophet, so do not get it twisted. Don't worry about God's mercy on me; you should concerned about your already condemnation and that of your muhammad for all his atrocities and that of his followers. I hope you guys have good and tested learned men to defend him, sorry, Islamic law and Sharia is not accepted.

I wonder how Nigeria can come

I wonder how Nigeria can come here and say this crook of a pastor is the annointed.Who could proove that?How do you proove that?So if Oyedepo says he is the annointed,all we have for it is his words.

members of this church who call him daddy while he lives lavidaloca life are absolute fools.

This oyedepo guy should be in jail.Am sure all commenting here in his favour are members of his church whom he has brainwashed into defending him.

So if he goes on rampage shooting people we shouldnt touch him cos hes the annointed,mischewwww?Excuse me while I laugh

I wish to see what his defence is gonna be in court.

Annointed my ass.OLE

the scripture says suffer no

the scripture says suffer no witch to live. Exo.22:18. every individual swears by either Bible or .., and i think neither of these books supports witchcrafts. None of it. case close. Afterall the girl confessed to be witch by her mouth. Witch is witch, ''there is no witch for jesus'', no one would be permited to tamper with biblical quote, there is ''no witch for Jesus''.Check your bible very well.

Obviously the Lawyer hasn't

Obviously the Lawyer hasn't met the girl because he doesn't even know her name. In Nigeria a girl does not bear the name 'Miss Justice' so the lawyer is just hoping to make money out of this matter. I hope the girl would be brought to court to testify by herself and have the chance to say what the pastor stopped her from saying. I bet even the Judge would throw up if he hears the blasphemous and unprintable remarks the young lady said about Jesus. A Muslim would kill hundreds if you dare make such statements against Prophet Mohamed

oyedepo's assault

Muslims should pls keep quiet and kip deir sentiments on christianity. I'd advice dat we all should sit back and enjoy d drama as it unfolds. He's a man of God,dats btw him n God. We ought 2comment carefully on him. But sincerely,u need not slap a person ² deliver d person of demons.Even Jesus used only words. Let's c how it ends. Am a christian and a lawyer. Let's b objective...

Did the girl ever asked the

Did the girl ever asked the lawyer to file a lawsuit? He is not even a human right lawyer and he took up such a case without the girl's concept. I advised you all never to put up negative words against Pastors, God will judge them when the time comes. I have seen the video on youtube, the girl's face did not even show up on the clip so how on earth did the Lawyer get to know the lil girl? Common sense is not common; this is no case! Simply a scandal

A very gd n welcome

A very gd n welcome development. We shud make these pastors accountable. Pls locate the girl and name her in the suit

you are the bigger ignorant fool and human worshipper

My friend what is wrong is wrong and nobody is above the law.In sane country David would have sold the church to pay damages.You think Jesus ask him to slap witches or cast it out by prayers.Hmm,dont be gullible.

All these wayo 419 lawyers

All these wayo 419 lawyers should go and rest. This is nothing but madness. The tribes men of the woman wants to make money out of the poor innocent girl. Money is the motive behind this rubbish. Was she forced to come to the alter by the holy spirit? Late Idahosa once slapped a man, he had a land dispute with in the name of the holy spirit. The said event does not warrant or qualify for all these gra gra legal fight for the pocket. These guys are nothing but thieves. Kidnappers of the poor girls conscience. 2b because he has a jet and a church. So u want to chop 2b. Thieves! How can Nigeria make progress with these set of crooks on ther loose?

Please look for other cases

Please barrister or what you called yourself first, the 1999 constitution recognize constituted authority, each church have their pattern of operation and believe, you dont challege an anoited man of God and win, so be carefull not to actract cure in yr life

Oyedepo is the devil incarnate. Shame on this evil Oyedepo.
Boycott all his literatures.

Oyedepo was wrong. The so

Oyedepo was wrong. The so called witch acted more like a Christian by showing the other cheek. But this barrister cannot sue as he wasn't the one slapped. Shouldn't not be the so called witch suing. This would be thrown out of court.

God mercies will never come to you for insulting Prophet Muhamad

I am a xtain and I have never see any muslim insulting our so call Jesus Christ for a second except when it come to issue of crucification which Muslim has made know to us if our Jesus is actually a son of God or begotten son, then God will not be watching his only son to be crucified. Muslim believe his image was changed to the Judas and judas was crucified , that muslim believe that in the process of crucification he nwas raised to heaven and that was why he is coming back.So back to the matter, what has Prophet Muhamad got to do with Oledepo. Besides, Prophet Muhammad married Aisah legally as Aisha father was one of the companions of Prophet Muhammad, so stop saying what you don’t know about otherwise you perished in the hell fire, is oyedepo God to punish anyone, if that what our bible is preaching then we need to check with Ajayi Crowder that committed many blunders in the process on his translation of Bible. Fija fun awon ton ba e ja. Oyedepo should get life.

This lawyer is a cheap fool,

This lawyer is a cheap fool, looking for a cheap popularity and only silence can cure him......This is no case.

re: na una sabi. Long throat ppl,

whoever you are, youshould be ashamed of yourself for making the above comment. You would do the same thing if you receive a slap like that in the general public shown all over the world. It none of your biz who chop the money. God will surely support the girl for the public assault given to her by the so called "man of God". Settle the girl jare.

Christain watch out may be your wife is the next victim of slap

Its only in Nigeria that working as postors is lucrative, none of prophet were rich during their time. Nowadays pstors steal, rub all the member of church to pay tight or wat you xtain call it and use the proceeds to buy jet like this oledepo . This never happen in Islam. He should be tried and rotten in Jail. That's why I am proud of westerners where justice prevail, in nigeria No justice, no human right, I wont be surprise if we started reading story of pastors killing the members to make ritual to get rich. God save you xtain in nigeria from rip off and public assault.

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU COMMENT

Please read carefully before you comment. while I'm not a lawyer, but this is a no case submission. As MKO once said, "you cant shave my head behind my back". The lawyer has no business suing Bishop Oyedepo without the victims consent. All Oyedepo needs to do is to produce the girl as his witness and its a case closed. Someone said he will go and also sue prophet Mohamed (SAW) and i keep wondering whether we are educated & think at all. Which judge will try that case? Please lets remove sentiments. instead let him sue Yerima as suggested, that is a better option. The same guy complaining against Yerima probably voted for PDP in the last election.
