An FCT High Court has granted mandatory orders to the Attorney General of the Federation to pay Glory Okolie N60m for unlawful detention by the police.
IDOMA VOICE had reported that the 22-year-old was arrested in Imo state by operatives of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) on June 17 for being friends with a suspected member of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
She was transferred to Abuja, despite efforts by her parents to secure her release.
After 66 days in detention, the police, in a statement, said she was arrested for alleged membership of IPOB and for working with one Benjamin Uzoma Emojiri to attack officers and stations in Imo.
Her detention stirred public outcry as many Nigerians, including civil society organisations, have called for her release.
