A Federal High Court in Lagos has ordered the Nigerian Army and its Chief of Army Staff (COAS) to suspend the ongoing Operation Positive Identification by the army, according to a report by TheNation.

Mr Falana, a rights activist, filed the suit marked FHC/L/CS/1939/2019 on October 25.
He is seeking, among others, an order stopping the operation.
The COAS, the Army and the Attorney-General of the Federation are first to third respondents in the suit.
