“Consequently, all prayers that are sought for in the motion papers are hereby granted as prayed.”

The judge ordered the Nigerian Government to fix the price of milk, flour, salt, sugar, bicycles and its spare parts, matches, motorcycles and its spare parts, motor vehicles and its spare parts, as well as petroleum products, which include diesel, petrol motor spirit (PMS) and kerosene.
