The appellate court in a lead judgment delivered by Justice Rita Pemu, maintained that all the three vital grounds of appeal made by NDLEA were in their favour.
NDLEA had in a eight-page notice of appeal stated that the trial judge erred in law by ruling that NDLEA was not justified in detaining Baba Suwe  from the day of his arrest on October 12, 2011 till October 21, 2011 when the Federal High Court granted a detention warrant.
The agency further stated that the trial judge erred in law and misdirected herself on facts when she held that the act of the NDLEA in detaining  Baba Suwe for 9 days was a flagrant abuse and infringement of his fundamental human rights.
The agency also argued that the lower court erred in law when it ordered her to pay Baba Suwe N25 million as compensation and that the agency should publish a public apology in two widely read national newspapers.
