Justice Muazu Abubakar of the State High Court who issued the order fixed October 3rd, 2019 for the hearing of the motion and substantive application filed by the Speaker, Deputy Speaker and 11 other members of the Assembly who participated in the House’s leadership election on the 20th of June.

Muazu Abubakar said that after listening to and considering the submissions made by the lawyers of the applicants, Barrister Jibrin Sa’id Jibrin, A.S Idris and U.K Adam, hereby ordered that status quo between the parties in the suit be maintained until the determination of the motion on notice.

Others are; the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Director-General, Department of State Services (DSS), Commissioner of Police, Bauchi State Command and Director of Department of State Services Bauchi State Command as well as the State Governor.
