SUPREME COURT IN, SC No:/957/2019, BETWEEN : JULIUS EFENI AKPOVOKA V. REVD FRANCIS EJIROGHENE WAIVE & ORS, TODAY THE 20TH DAY OF AUGUST, 2019 DISMISSED AKPOVOKA CASE.
ANOTHER RESOUNDING VICTORY!!!!
1. The court drew the attention of Akpovoka’s lawyer to the erudite and sound judgment of the Court of Appeal, that the case was statute barred (the Supreme court counted the 14 days for them and concluded that the Court of Appeal was too generous to count it in the manner they did).
2. That the case was an abuse of court processes having filed multiple cases on the same subject matter
3. That the letter of withdrawal was completely false.Akpovoka’s lawyer when asked to see page 178 of the Record told court that he lost his bag with the Record in it. 🤣🤣🤣 the court went on to admonish him saying that all his scheming has eventually caught up with him.
The court gave him no option than to withdraw the motion to abridge time as well as withdraw the substantive appeal. The appeal was consequently dismissed.
