N5m fine: Court strikes out SERAP

 

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) lawsuit against Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed and the National Broadcasting Commission(NBC) has been struck out by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.

 

SERAP had approached the court to stop the N5million fine imposed on some broadcast stations in the wake of the #EndSARS crisis weeks ago.

 

However ruling on the case, the Court held that SERAP has no locua standi in the case as it is not a part of the matter. The Judge further stated that the case is a mere academic exercise.
