Oyenka: no it was not heard but it was cuz of administrative lapses on the part of the bailliff. I believe we have nothing to fear


Poeticallytinted: sure

I am also waiting o!
Let us see that Nigeria has started to respect the law.

I kind of have a feeling they will keep on stalling and there would be plenty of feet dragging.......but God will help us move forward in Nigeria!

I believe justice will notbe denied as well but then when you begin to hear of postponements, adjournments and the likes, one begins to have doubts. . . She sure deserves justice. This is like a big test for the Nigerian judicial system, especially as the whole world watches . . . Yes indeed (I got the initial story on facebook and facebook means the whole world these days).

what has been done on the case so far?...i heard recently that the man has been moved to some other position, i dont know if it was a promotion or demotion, i earnesty doubt the latter sha...please keep us posted

In my head and around me said...

Did owls find their way into the courtroom? I hear that happened last week during a hearing and the judge and others ran off thinking that they were sent by their enemies.

In my head and around me said...

LusciousRon, I think we can expect a lot of adjournments. The Nigerian legal system crawls. Its like expecting that they will stop in the Sente or even stop throwing chairs at each other. Not happening!

StandTall-The Activist said...

Well, dont let us be skeptical yet. I want to believe that justice will be done. Our judicial system has really improved somewhat

Baroque: the guy was deployed not demoted or suspended which I would have preferred

StandTall-The Activist said...

Sorry that I did a joint replied. Hmmm guess it captured everything

Dammy: the cats are doing great. Hope you doing great too

Well, I guess we'll wait and see even though it doesn't look good.

I love the title (I didn't read all the rest, honnestly) The pope should frame that quote and hang it over his desk ! instead of preaching not to use condoms !
