The matter, billed to be heard today at the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court, on Monday, was adjourned till June 20 by the court registrar following the absence of Justice Binta Nyako in court who was said to have gone for an official assignment, according to People’s Gazette.
On May 3, the judge warned lawyers to the SSS and Kanu against truncating proceedings in the next adjourned date, following the day’s proceeding that could not go on due to an oral application by SSS counsel, Idowu Awo, seeking more time to respond to a further affidavit served on him by Kanu’s lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, in the open court.
