Despite the order of accelerated hearing granted by Justice M.B. Idris of the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos in the suit filed by former first lady, Patience Jonathan challenging the order freezing the accounts of some companies which she claims holds her funds, hearing could still not proceed in the suit today as some of the companies sued by the former first lady had yet to be served with the processes in the suit.
The court had directed that the processes meant for the companies be served on the company secretary and counsel to Mrs. Jonathan explained that they had been able to obtain the order of court permitting them to serve the processes on the company secretary yesterday and would need time to serve the companies with the processes as well as have the companies respond.
The suit has thus been adjourned to the 13th of February 2017 for hearing.
