Impeachment suit: Nyako knows fate May 11

06 May 2015, 15:05

Yola - A Federal High Court in Yola has fixed May 11 for judgment in a suit filed by a former governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako, challenging his removal from office in July 2014, Punch reports.

The latest development followed last week’s return of the case file by the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Ibrahim Auta, to Yola after withdrawing it few days to the date the judgment was originally scheduled to be delivered in February.

The trial judge in Yola, Justice Bilikisu Aliyu, had after conducting hearing in the case fixed February 13, 2015 for judgment.

But before the judgment day, Justice Auta called for the case file on account of a petition written by the Acting Chief Judge of Adamawa State, Justice Ishaya Banu, whose application to join the suit as a defendant was earlier dismissed by Justice Aliyu.

After three weeks of holding the file, Justice Auta transferred it to Bauchi Division of the Federal High Court without disclosing whether his decision had anything to do with the outcome of the petition.

But Nyako, through his counsel, Mr. Olukoya Ogungbeje, opposed the transfer of the case to Bauchi Division, and filed an application asking the presiding judge, Justice M.G. Umar, to return the case to Yola.
