The lawyer that represented Mustapha Abubakar at the Monday hearing of the Appeal Court sitting in the case between Giwa FC and the LMC bigwigs, Habilah Adzard has clarified the position of the appeal court over their conviction, stating that never did the court
strike out the orders of the high court.
He also said that the matter between the Amaju NFF and the Giwa NFF was never struck off, rather the court asked both parties to proceed to the Supreme Court.
“Counsel to LMC raised the issue of committal made by the Jos High court because of their failure to obey their order,and asked the court to stop the police from harassing or arresting their clients, but the judges said the orders would remain until arguments are made and decision reached”, Habilah said.
“So as it stands, the order of the High Court on contempt, committal and the warrant of arrest stands”.
” On October 11, when the matter comes up, all arguments will be canvassed by counsel to all parties.”But we have filed another motion that will also be coming up on that day. We are asking the court to cancel the results of all matches played when the order was pronounced.
“Finally i want to state here that never did the appeal court strike out the case between the Giwa led NFF and the Amaju group rather it transmitted the battle to the supreme court for determination”. he concluded
