Judge Accuses Nyako Of Abusing Court Processes In His Bid To Retrieve Governorship Position


A judge of the Federal High Court, sitting in Yola Justice Bilikus Bello Aliyu, has dismissed a suit filed by former governor Murtala Nyako challenging his impeachment by Adamawa State House of Assembly last year, accusing Nyako of abusing court processes..

In his judgement, Justice Bello Aliyu said the case brought before her by Nyako was an abuse of court process as three suits are pending before competent courts of law on the same issue and as such she can not entertain the suit.

“This suit is an abuse of this court and courts should protect themselves from abuse,” she said.

The judge has in the course of delivering the ruling, upheld the objection of the counsel to first respondent Leonard Zadon that the same case is pending before three high courts.

The Judge had earlier upheld the appellant argument that his right was grossly infringed upon by the respondent, citing section 36 of the 1999 constitution of federal republic of Nigeria as amended.
