Recall that the Federal Government has been served with an interlocutory order of injunctions against the sixth and seventh defendants in the ongoing High Court action brought by former President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Muhammadu Sani Abubakar, on behalf of his son-in-lawyer.

Presiding judge, Justice Tijjani Ringim, however, declined to entertain the suit holding that it was unripe for hearing since the defendants were yet to respond to the motion.

The judge also said the respondents had time to file their responses since the applicant’s processes were served on the respondents on September 2nd.
