Addressing lawyers representing the parties in the case on Wednesday, Justice Garba said, “You will recall on Monday that you indicated that trial should begin on Thursday.

“In line with that, the pre-hearing session for this petition will have to end today (Wednesday) to enable us to commence trial in respect of this petition from Thursday, July 4, 2019.
