Malami’s absence stalls hearing of NBA’s suit against his office

Malami’s absence stalls hearing of NBA’s suit against his office

The absence of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), on Thursday, stalled hearing in a suit against his office by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Although Malami was served with hearing notice in the suit marked FHC/ ABJ/ CS/ 77/2022, he neither appeared in court nor represented by a lawyer and no explanation was given for his absence.

Counsel to the NBA, Ibrahim Sunday Ameh (SAN), expressed displeasure over the AGF’s absence in court in the suit in which he is a sole defendant.

Ameh informed the trial Judge, Justice Donatus Okoronwo, that the AGF had filed a memorandum of conditional appearance and counter affidavit to the originating summons of the NBA served on him and wondered why the defendant did not deem it fit to be in court.

The senior lawyer however said that since the matter was for mention, he urged the court to give an adjournment for the defendant to have another opportunity to appear in court.
