Otedola vs Farouk: Court Adjourns Suit Indefinitely

Justice Peter Kekemeke of the Abuja high Court, Wednesday, adjourned further hearing in the suit between  oil mogul, Femi Otedola and the embattled erstwhile Chairman of the House of Representatives Ad-hoc Committee on fuel subsidy probe, Farouk Lawan, indefinitely.

Otedola vs Farouk: Court Adjourns Suit Indefinitely

The court took the decision following an appeal that was lodged before the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal by the embattled lawmaker.

Farouk had gone to the appellate court to challenge the jurisdiction of the high court to entertain the action which he said was incompetent and baseless.

In a motion for stay of action, his lawyer maintained that the trial judge erred in law when he assumed jurisdiction to hear the case despite separate preliminary objections that were filed both by himself and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal.
