Court Fails To Deliver Judgment On Evans Suit
The Federal High Court in Lagos has failed to deliver judgment in the N300m Fundamental Rights Enforcement Suit brought by a suspected kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans, against the Nigerian Police Force.
The Presiding Judge, Justice Abdulaziz Anka adjourned the case to September 5, 2017, at the instance of the Commissioner of Police Legal, David Igbodo who turned up in court with an application claiming that the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and the Nigerian Police Force had not been party to the proceedings and the court could not go ahead with judgment without hearing from both parties.
Mr Igbodo also told the court that the counsel to Evans, Olukoya Ogungbeje had failed to serve the court documents personally on the two respondents who were based in Abuja.
He also claimed that one Henry Obaze who represented both respondents in court at the last date had no authorization to do so.
This was after dismissing all the objections to the hearing of the suit.
After the ruling, the court heard the application proper and fixed the judgment date
