In his ruling, the presiding Judge, Bolaji Olajuwon, held that there was evidence before the court that Usman has substantially complied with the court’s earlier order directing the reinstatement of an officer.

Justice Olajuwon held that in view of the development, the application by the IGP, seeking the vacation of the committal order is worthy of sympathetic consideration.

The judge had in the November 29 ruling convicted the IGP and sentenced him to a three-month jail term for failing to obey the October 21, 2011 judgment of the Federal High Court reinstating Okoli.
