The Judge and her team rose after making their decision, while the others came in to make their disserting ruling on the matter.

The dissenting parties are; Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) Mr. Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, representing the Civil Society, Ms. Patience Udoh representing the Civil Society; Rinu Oduala and Temitope Majekodunmi, representing #EndSARS protesters.
