They were found guilty for moving a motion that led to the violation of the fundamental human right of Mr. Obi, after the counsels to the victim led by Ebi Robert took up the matter and petitioned the Commissioner of Police, Bayelsa State command, and also filed a case for the enforcement of his fundamental rights.
