A former Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Andrew Yakubu, yesterday terminated his fundamental human rights enforcement suit.
He asked for N1 billion compensation for his alleged unlawful detention by EFCC following his arrest on February 8.
His lawyer cited the recent arraignment of Yakubu and the bail subsequently granted him by the court as the grounds for filing the discontinuance notice.
In another development, the trial of former Governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam, was stalled yesterday at the Federal High Court in Abuja after the Department of State Service failed to produce him in court.
The former governor and the Commissioner for Finance during his tenure, Omadachi Oklobia, are currently standing trial for allegedly diverting N3 billion belonging to Benue State Government by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
Presiding judge, Justice Ahmed Mohammed adjourned the matter to the May 9.
