The claim brought by Philip Shaibu, the impeached deputy governor of Edo State, against the State House of Assembly and others, has been scheduled for hearing by a Federal High Court in Abujla on April 19.

After a group of attorneys, led by Alex Ejesieme, SAN, appeared to request a date for the case, Justice Inyang Ekwo scheduled a hearing for this Friday.

Despite the fact that the lawsuit, designated FHC/ABJ/CS/405/24, was not included in the cause list, the attorneys for the defense appeared in court.

The matter was supposed to be heard on Thursday, but the court did not meet because of the public holiday, one of the attorneys informed Justice Ekwo shortly before the judge rose.

“So in obedience to court, we came today,” he said.

However, Justice Ekwo ordered them to coordinate with the court registrar for the upcoming postponed date, citing his inability to rule over a subject that was not in the file.

Thus, April 19 was set aside for the subject.

Remembers that Shaibu was ousted by the Edo State Assembly last week.

Determined to take legal action, the beleaguered former deputy governor declared his dismissal to be unlawful.
