Yola - A Federal High Court sitting in Yola has dismissed a suit instituted by impeached governor of Adamawa State Murtala Nyako claiming he was wrongly removed, Premium Times reports.
The judge, Bilikus Aliyu, said the case brought before her was an abuse of court process as three suits were pending before a competent court of law on the same issue and as such she could not entertain the suit.
Aliyu upheld the objection of the counsel to the state assembly, Leonard Zadon, that the same case is pending before three high courts.
