See Jibrin Withdrew Old Suit Against Dogora Others To Reinforce

He didn’t chicken out, he actually reinforced! Former Chairman, Appropriation Committee, House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has filed a N1bn suit before a Federal High Court in Abuja challenging his suspension from the House after he withdrew the old suit on Friday.

His lawyer, Chukwuma Nwachukwu, moved his application for discontinuance of the earlier suit on Friday and informed the court that a fresh originating summons had been filed before the court.

Justice John Tsoho however struck out the earlier suit filed by the lawmaker following the motion for withdrawal of the suit. And a fresh suit demanding N1bn from the lawmakers is now before the court.

Recall he was suspended by the House of Representatives for 180 legislative days on September 28.
