Logistics servicing company, Intels Nigeria Ltd has asked a Federal High Court in Abuja to review the decision by the Comptroller General of Immigration revoking the residence/work permits of 102 expatriates in its workforce.
In the suit by Adeniyi Adegbonmire (SAN), Intels is praying for an order of mandatory injunction compelling the Comptroller General of Immigration to immediately reverse the two weeks’ notice to the expatriate to leave the country on or before November 30, 2017.
At the resumed hearing yesterday, Agbonmire informed the court that the service of the summons to show cause, was served on the immigration boss, Ibrahim Babandede as ordered by the court. The agency was however not represented in court. Consequently, Justice Ahmed Mohammed adjourned the case to January 10, 2018. Specifically, the applicant is asking the court to declare that the decision of Nigerian Immigration “Is unlawful, unconstitutional, wrong and void ab initio.”
