The Order of the honorable court commanding the commissioner of police/ deputy Commissioner of police ( state Scid, Awka) was duly served on them.

“The service of the said Order ofthe High Court notwithstanding, the deputy Commissioner of police continued to detain the mother of five kids till date without charging her to court claiming that he obtained an order from magistrate Awka to keep the woman ad infinitum.
