Two groups, Save Nigeria Group and Kingdom Human Rights Foundation International, on Friday, withdrew their suit filed in December 2016 seeking orders compelling President Muhammadu Buhari to declare the chairmanship position of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission vacant.
The plaintiffs had also in the same suit, urged the court to compel Buhari to sack the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Babachir Lawal.
But upon an oral application by the plaintiffs’ lawyer, Mr. Kindgdom Okere, on Friday, seeking the withdrawal of the suit, Justice John Tsoho struck out the case.
Speaking with our correspondent after the Friday’s proceedings, Okere told our correspondent that the boards of the plaintiffs had reviewed the activities of Magu as acting Chairman of the EFCC and had decided to support him.
