A lawyer, Babatunde Olokun, has slammed a N10 million suit on a senator, Buruji Kashamu (PDP-Ogun).

Mr Olokun is pressing charges against Mr Kashamu over alleged unlawful arrest, continuous threat to life, harassment and infringement on fundamental human rights.

Mr Olokun, a legal practitioner, who filed the application at the Federal High Court in Abuja, alleged that the senator was making murderous threats to his life through phone calls.

He asked the court to declare the acts unconstitutional and a violation of his rights.
