However, in his judgment on Monday, February 21, Justice Inyang Ekwo noted that the suit contained some averments that would require the response of the Federal Government.

“Upon studying the process of the Applicant and averments in support thereon, I am of the opinion that the respondent should be put on notice,” the judge held.

Justice Ekwo ordered that all the relevant processes should be served on FG which was cited as the sole respondent and adjourned the case till February 24 for hearing.
