JUST IN: Jibrin Withdraws Suit Against House Of Reps
« on: October 21, 2016, 05:56:24 PM »


The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Friday struck out the suit of Abdulmumin Jibrin, a former Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, challenging his suspension from the House.

The judge, Justice John Tsoho, struck out the matter after Jibrinís Counsel, Mr Chukuma Nwachukwu, told the court that his client had filed a notice of discontinuance.Tsoho decline the request of the defendants for a N200,000 cost, holding that the defendants were ďstrong institution and personalityĒ.

At the hearing, Jibrinís counsel, Nwachukwu, told the court that there was a notice of discontinuance filed on Oct. 11, urging the court to discontinue the matter.

The Counsel to the defendants, Mr Kalu Onuoha, did not oppose the application, but asked for a cost of N200,000 for the processes filed by them.

He said the defendants filed many processes in this case before the court went on vacation in July 2016.

Nwachukwu, however, opposed the application with the fact that the defendants did not filed any defence in this matter.

It will be recalled that Jibrin, a lawmaker from Kano State, was suspended by the House of Representatives for 180 legislative days.

The embattled legislatorís suit seeking stop the House was still pending in court. (NAN)
