Court adjourns Sunday Igboho aides’ trial till August 4, Urges applicants’ counsel to amend processes
A Federal High Court in Abuja, yesterday, granted an application for amendment of names on the court process in fundamental human rights suit brought against the Department of State Services (DSS) by the detained aides of Sunday Igboho.
The trial judge, Justice Obiora Egwuatu, granted the request following an application filed by the applicants’ counsel, Pelumi Olajemgbesi, who prayed the court for amendment on discrepancies in names listed on the court process.
Counsel to the DSS, who did not oppose the application, however, said granting of an application for amendment of processes filed was at the discretion of the court.
Justice Egwuatu accordingly granted the application for amendment of the names on the court process and adjourned the matter till August 4, 2021, for the continuation of trial.
