Counsel’s absence stalls suspended SEC DG’s case

The absence of counsel to suspended Director-General of Securities and Exchange Commission, Mounir Gwarzo, on Thursday, stalled the matter before the National Industrial Court, Abuja.

At the resumed sitting slated for hearing of counter-affidavit and other pending applications, the claimant’s counsel Abdulhakeem Mustapha (SAN), notified the court of his absence through a junior counsel from his chamber.

The counsel, Sani Umoru, sought for a new date at the convenience of the court.

The judge, Justice Sanusi Kado, asked Abduljalil Musa, Chinedu Achumie and Abdullahi Abubakar first, second and third defendants counsel respectively if they had any objection to the submission of Umoru.

The counsel said they had no objection, while the judge adjourned the matter until February 28 for hearing.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that Gwarzo, is challenging his suspension as DG.
