The rift between the Delta State Police Command and former Minister of State for Education, Chief Kenneth Gbagi, took a dramatic turn on Wednesday as the Police declared former Minister wanted over his failure to honour Police invitation.

However, a Federal High Court in Abuja, on Wednesday, also restrained the Police from arresting former Minister of State for Education, Chief Kenneth Gbagi, pending the hearing and determination of the suit filed by Gbagi.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hafiz Inuwa, had reportedly invited Gbagi for questioning over purported dehumanization of some workers by management of a Hotel owned by the former Minister.

While the Police has directed operatives to arrest Gbagi at sight, incidentally, Justice Taiwo O Taiwo, of Federal High Court, also restrained the Inspector General of Police, Commissioner of Police, Delta state, whether by themselves, their agents, employees, or by whatever name called.

The Court ordered the Police to stop threatening to arrest and detaining Gbagi pending the hearing and determination of his application for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights.
