KATSINA 2015: UMAR ABDULLAHI TSAURI TATA Vs MTN NIGERIA LIMITED
Today at the Federal High Court 1 Kaduna with Justice MS Shuaibu presiding, the case of Umar Abdullahi Tsauri Tata versus MTN came up for mention. After listening to the two sides, Justice Shuaibu adjourned the case to 19th January, 2017 to hear the interlocutory objection raised by MTN challenging the jurisdiction of the court to hear the case.
This motion has been filed since June 2016 upon which a counter motion was filed by the applicant and still could not be heard since then due to the disposition of the Katsina presiding judge. In his ruling, justice Shuaibu informed the two sides that the briefs filed by the defendent and the applicant will be adopted and the motion determined before further proceedings could be entertained.
The case which came as No. 8 on the court’s order paper was called by 2.25 and was expeditiously dispensed with within 30 minutes. Hearing is on the 19th January, 2017 inshaa Allah.
