Abuja - Hearing in two of the 15 suits filed against the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari, before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja was on Monday stalled, reports Guardian.

The suits were stalled following the inability of the defendants to serve their written addresses on one of the plaintiffs to the suit.

At the resumed hearing on Monday, Chike Obi through his counsel, Mike Ozekhome, informed the court that he had not been served with the defendants’ responses to the suit.
