However counsel for the CJN, Mr Sam Ologunorisa (SAN), who informed the court that the plaintiff and his counsel were not available, added that it seemed the plaintiff and his counsel were “running away” from the suit they filed, stressing that the court should do the needful in the interest of justice.
Punch reported that he said;
“We filed a notice of preliminary objection, a counter-affidavit and a written address. We urge the court to deem it fit that the originating summons has been argued. We have to look at Exhibit III of the originating summons. We urge the court to dismiss the suit. The case is meant to scandalise the CJN,”
Justice Danlami Senchi who adjourned the case till Friday, said the plaintiff will be given yet another opportunity to prove the allegation.
