Supreme Court strike out Giwa’s motions


ABUJA, NOVEMBER 1, 2016 – The Supreme Court on Monday in Abuja struck out two motions brought by Chris Giwa and his group.

Ademola Olajire, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) spokesman, made this known in a statement issued in Abuja.

Olajire said the motion by Giwa sought to stay the execution of the ruling of the Court of Appeal barring Oba Maduabuchi from appearing before it on behalf of Giwa and his group.

He also sought to stay the execution of the judgment of the same court vacating the orders of the Federal High Court relisting the case and restoring the orders.

Giwa, proprietor of Giwa FC of Jos, has been in court against Nigeria football federation in the past 28 months.

He had also lost at the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland.

It would be recalled that on Monday, July 25, 2016, the Court of Appeal, Jos Judicial Division, had thrown out Giwa’s case, vacating the order of the Federal High Court of the same division that re-listed the case and restored earlier orders.
