Emeka Ike's case adjourned again

27 June 2014, 13:40

Lagos - A Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday fixed October 10 for hearing a suit filed by an actor, Emeka Ike, against the Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN) over a leadership tussle.

The case which was fixed for hearing of the plaintiff’s suit could not go on due to the tight schedule of the court.

Justice James Tsoho adjourned the suit alongside few others to enable him to attend an official function.

On March 24, the judge ordered hearing notices to be served on counsel to the parties, following their absence in court.

 Ike filed the suit through his Counsel, Mr Malcom Omirhobo, on July 25, 2013.

He is challenging the formation of an alleged illegal government known as 'National Unity' , to run the affairs of the AGN.

The actor is seeking an order of court to review the 2007 Constitution of the AGN as it relates to the tenure of its board of trustees.

The actor alleged that the AGNs’ board had remained in office since July 13, 1999 when the guild was incorporated.

According to him, the board members are:  Segun Arinze, Prince Ifeanyi Dike, Emmanuel Oguguah, Murphy Stephen, Sunny McDon and Okey McAnthony.

He seeks an order to set aside the appointment of Segun Arinze as the President of the guild, as well as an order reviewing the provisions of the guild’s constitution.

Tsoho had granted an interim order for status quo to be maintained, and adjourned for hearing of the substantive suit.
