Justice Ambros Namadi of the Adamawa state High court sitting in Yola, yesterday restrained the state house from serving impeachment notice on Governor Murtala Nyako and his deputy, Bala Ngilari. The court also prevented the legislators from proceeding with the impeachment process against Nyako pending the determination of a motion on notice. Nyako’s counsel Mr. Jerry Owen had filed a motion ex-parte on behalf of the governor, asking the court to stop the three respondents and their agents from going ahead with the impeachment moves.
It will also interest you to know that the judge who presided over this case is the acting chief judge of Adamawa state.
Did governor Nyako make a political mistake to have defected to the APC?
