Agabi said the motion challenges the jurisdiction of the tribunal to trial his client.

Rotimi Jacobs, the prosecution counsel, however said  he has not been served any motion.

Jacobs called attention of the court to the ruling of the Supreme Court that the trial must go on.

But Agabi insisted that the tribunal could not proceed without a ruling on the motion.

He said the motion has been served on the Ministry of Justice.

After heated arguments by Agabi and Jacobs, tribunal Charmian, Danladi Umar adjourned the matter till Friday March 18  for hearing of the motion and possible hearing of the substantive matter.

He asked the defence to ensure that he served all motions and processes on the prosecution counsel to avoid further delay of the trial.
