Court To Hear Kebbi Pre-guber Election Suit Thursday

Published

on


Hearing in a 2015 pre-election election matter between incumbent Governor Alhaji Atiku Abubakar Bagudu of All Progressive Congress (APC) and Major General Bello Yaki (Rtd) of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), comes up Thursday in Federal High Court Abuja.

The presiding judge Justice Mohammed Ahmed had on December 11, 2017 adjourned the case with suit number FHC/ABJ/CS312/2015 for hearing.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is a co-defendant in the matter.

The plaintiff Mr. Anthony Itanyi is claiming that Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of the APC is wanted in the United States of America, over his involvement in the looting of millions of Dollars during the reign of late Head of State, General Sani Abacha.

Governor Bagudu filed preliminary objection challenging the jurisdiction of Federal High Court to entertain the matter.

In an appeal decided by the Supreme Court, the apex court held that not only that the Federal High Court has jurisdiction to hear the case but also ordered for an accelerated hearing on the matter.
