Court dismisses suit against Oshiomhole

A suit filed against the immediate past Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole and three others has been dismissed by a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Jabi, Abuja.

The suit, filed by Comrade Mustapha Salihu and five others, was the suit that brought about an interim order on March 4 which suspended Oshiomhole from further acting as the APC’s National Chairman.

The Court of Appeal, in Abuja in a judgment on June 16, 2020, upheld Oshiomhole’s suspension.

Parties were to return to the High Court of the FCT for determination of the substantive suit, when on Thursday, Plaintiff’s lawyer, Oluwola Afolabi moved a motion to withdraw the case.

Afolabi said the withdrawal was informed by the directive by leaders of the APC that all court cases be discontinued in the interest of peace.

Lawyer to Oshiomhole and one other, Ginika Ezeoke said she was not opposed to the plaintiffs’ desire to withdraw.

Ezeoke then urged the court to dismiss the suit on the grounds that parties have filed pleadings and have be enjoined issues in relation to the subject of the case.

Ruling, Justice Danlami Senchi dismissed the suit and ordered parties to bear their respective costs.
