The Counsel for NUJ/Jacob Zango and Waheed Adubi, Barr Desmond Tabawhat had informed the Chief Magistrate that the Counsel for the Honor Sirawoo’s led SWAN was not in court and therefore asked the Court to strike out the case, as there was no excuse from him. He informed the Court that he was ready to argue the case that the Court lacks jurisdiction to hear the case which borders on leadership tussle.
The Chief Magistrate however listened to the excuse of Jacob Onjewu Dickson representing Honour Sirawoo’s led SWAN, who said that their Counsel lost his father, hence, his failure to appear in court for the case.
Upon the information, the Chief Magistrate asked Barr Desmond Tabawhat, counsel for NUJ his views, the Counsel said that he can take a date to give the other party another chance.
